Gerard Nus wants NorthEast United to be a tough opponent for Bengaluru FC as the two teams kick off Round 5 of the current Indian Super League (ISL) on Tuesday.
The Highlanders have started the season on a good note and are third in the table with eight points from four games. Their undefeated start will be put to the test against Bengaluru FC, which is coming off a win against archrival Chennaiyin FC. The Blues have developed a reputation as a physical side that capitalizes on their set pieces.
“The principles of our style will not change because we believe in those (principles). Of course, we also take the opponent into consideration. It is well known that Bengaluru is really strong in set pieces. So we are going to be ready at best. possible way, “Nus said before the game.
“Any team has different ways of creating opportunities. We try in many ways to become dangerous to the opponent, be it on the counter, [with] positional or more direct play, from set pieces or other forms. We try to be unpredictable because then it is difficult for the opponents to deal with us. That is why it is important to be good in all those areas, “he added.
The 35-year-old admitted that he is concerned about the physical form of his team, as they would have eight games in a month when their clash against Odisha FC occurs on December 22.
“I’m very worried about tomorrow’s game (Tuesday) because we didn’t have much time to prepare like we played two days ago, but it doesn’t matter. That’s right and we’re going to fight from the first minute to the last. I’m sure we’ll be ready for the challenge no matter what. “
However, the NorthEast United player praised the individual performances of his players that helped him rotate his first XI effectively.
“I don’t think there is any team in the league that has more rotations than us. If you look at the previous game, we started with five different players from the previous one. That tells you that there is no side that gave more opportunities for more players like us. If we do, it is because we have very good players, “he continued.
“That’s really a good position to be in. It shows that everyone wants to fight for a spot in the top 11 or even if it means getting into a game. You can’t always trust the top 11 players. So it’s good to be on that guy. of position with players improving every day. “
