“Obviously, he doesn’t want some players in the team again not because they are old or not good but because he feels he can bring his own players but this is too early for a coach to be experimenting with a winning team,” another player said.

“World Cup ticket is not in our hands, let the coach do the right thing, we will be there to give our best, we are all professionals, we are not home base players that will be shivering,” a striker angrily said.
