Alfaz Ahmed Meets the Media
Alfaz- Alfaz Ahmed
J- Welcome to HAL! You are sitting here as the new HAL manager. Are you excited to be here?
Alfaz- Yes, very much. I am quite happy that the president has trusted me to lead this club forward. HAL is one of the biggest clubs of Bangalore and I hope to keep them in right track.
J- Will you be concentrating solely on the Third Division, or will you be focusing on the state league too?
Alfaz- I would say both. We were pretty disappointing in Bangalore Super Division last season. I want the team to improve our position in the state league form last season. And winning our group in Third Division is necessary to get promoted, so it will get my equal priority.
J- You are in this job without knowing Hindi. Do you think it may cause you a problem?
Alfaz- No, not so much as I don't think it is really necessary to know the language. But I will still try to learn the language as soon as possible.
J- What do you think of the squad? Do you think you need to strengthen it?
Alfaz- I still haven't met the players. They are still on holiday. Although, I got some feedback from my backroom staff about the players, I want to assess them myself in pre-season and bring necessary change if needed.
J- What kind of football would you want your side to play?
Alfaz- Football is all about entertainment and that's what I intend to provide for the HAL fans.
J- Where do you think you'll be able to lead your team to this season?
Alfaz- Well, its quite difficult to say. Nobody knows what can happen in the course of the season, nothing is certain in football. However, if we can play like we are predicted to play, then I am sure it won't be much problem in achieving promotion. We just need to believe in ourselves and the fans need to show their utmost support to the team.
J- Alright, thank you for answering my question, Alfaz. Good luck to you and HAL.
Alfaz- Thank you very much.
