East Bengal dropped points against Hyderabad FC on Thursday though they actually took the initial lead in the football match. They ended up in 1-1 draw, securing just one point in the ongoing Indian Super League (ISL) season. But though they now remain winless after eight matches, East Bengal head coach Manuel Diaz is still holding out hope. By maintaining his contentment with his Indian football players, Diaz is happy with East Bengal despite a slump in form.
The East Bengal coach was happy to at least share one point, as they shared one goal each, with Hyderabad.
Indian Football Players – Diaz Is Happy with East Bengal despite a Slump
Coach Manuel Diaz was satisfied with the performance of his team in their midweek fixture in the ISL.
Indeed, the East Bengal manager praised his players for securing even a point against a strong side like Hyderabad FC.
“We want to win every game. Hyderabad was a very good side. We did a good job. We scored one goal and one shot hit the crossbar. I am happy with the performance of the team,” suggested Diaz. “The players had a difficult job but they did a good job.”
The former Real Madrid Castilla coach pointed once again that the East Bengal was built by the club management, though.
He reiterated the sad fact that him and the coaching staff had very little say in the team-building process.
“The squad was built by the board and we didn’t take the decision to build the squad. Every day we want to work to improve our levels in every match,” stated the East Bengal boss.
