Milla Congratulates Oliveira the Difference Maker

Dubai: 9 October 2013
Al Jazira coach Luis Milla congratulated his attacker and the team captain Ricardo Oliveira for his great contribution in the match against Dubai in the 4th round of the Cup League, and admitted that his 3 goals made the difference for the team at that complicated match.
In the post-match press conference Milla admitted that his team performance affected by missing so many key players, and the new faces in the startup squad missed the understanding and this led to the bad start and the early goal at the first half.
The coach also admitted that his team is still suffering from the bad starts and they are still working to fix this issue, but in return he insisted that the team character is still as it is, and the players’ faith in their ability to win and their fighting spirit was the reason behind their comeback against Dubai and their returning home with the 3 points.
Milla insisted that his team has not been affected at all by the departure of Diake, he said that his team is still creating and scoring goals, and their 7 goals in the last 2 matches can be a good proof on that, and also their coming back from behind with the score and not being affected by early goals or red cards can be used as an indicator for the team strong character.
At the end Luis tribute his team captain and striker Ricardo Oliveira, who equalized the score at crucial time, and scored the 2nd and 3rd goals and played the bigger role in the victory of his team. Milla said that Ricardo managed to compensate the absence of his partners Nelson Valdez and Ali Mabkhout, and he helped his teammates to maintain their focus and their desire to win the game.
