‘Scanderbeg’s coach Ilir Daja partially blamed the referee Simon Lee Evans incorrect attitude for last night defeat by the Young Boys. Daja expressed his indignation for visas refusal to the Nigerian striker James Adeniyi.
“Europe is so fond of us that the problems start since the visas refusal. We entered the field with no striker last night. Sowe was injured while Adeniyi was absent due to the visas refusal. A penalty was also denied at 74th minute while the referee threatened us a post-match report. Of course we feel sorry because the preparatory work for this match started since June,” said Coach Daja.
Regarding the numerous replacements made during this match he said that the goal was to activate more players that would be able to prevent adversary’s headshots.
“Osmani entered the field with the purpose of filling the gaps in defense sector thanks to his height. He also gives a new impetus to the team when playing as striker,” said Daja.
