Baku. 20 December. REPORT.AZ/ President of "Qarabag" club Abdolbari Goozal commented on performance of team in Europa League group stage.
Report informs, Turkish businessmen said the main target is to overstep the group.
He said: "We had very good results. But in football results are round. Sometimes problems arise. This year our main target is to overstep the group. We were close to it, but we had a bad luck a couple of times. Meeting with "Slovan" broke the balance of the team. 0: 3 defeat made us very uncomfortable. Head coach Gurban Gurbanov sees shortcomings. We told him to remove them and do your best to raise the team up".
A. Goozal stressed the importance of achieving the same goal next season: " We will be Azerbaijan's pearl in next season as well. In the past it was very important to be the first in country. Now it is time to set targets in Europe. It's true there are very competitive clubs in Azerbaijan such as "Gabala", "Zira". When playing with strong team players get used to power. Without competition strong teams also get weaker. Our main target is to overstep the group, we wait for it".
