Since the first round, we hade no wins against a non-bot teams, so it was with great pleasure that coach Yannis Kotakis could handle the pressure and get a 3-0 victory at MS Park against Union America.
“It is a huge redemption, and most of all a victory for the morale on the team” he said with a big smile. The old technician who took the plunge for the post as head coach last season, has started a huge project involving both fairly pitch success and extremely focused on talent. “I knew what I went into and development in the squad goes as planned – Look at Byskov today. Yet again he is up there up testing the opposing goalkeeper and Bogh continues his magnificent development even though he was a little injuried today. I have no reason to sleep poorly, and certainly not when we give the division, on paper, second best team an overhauled as we did. ”
MSO Trainer also took notice of Naser Ibn-Faysal after another fine effort that was crowned with the seasons 5 goal from him, including friendlies. “Faysal is the team’s undiscovered diamond. He looks like a piece of coal, but he has so much to offer and most opposite players struggles against his speed.” Faysal Ibn-scored to 3-0 after 72 minutes and and got an assist in the 1-0 goal as Abu-Aziz handled the ball over the line after a half hour game. “Aziz is simply indispensable for us. 102 goals in his career and 52 for us in less than 90 matches – it inspires respect from opponents and even more from his teammates. This is his fourth season at Odense, and the third after his return, and he has 3 topscore titles within the club and one in the division on his conscience – if I think he is top scorer in this season too? The answer is a loudly yes” – Coach Kotakis
Aziz and Co.. now looks ahead at Wednesday’s derby against Kickers Revolution and Sunday’s tough away game against FC Bolhede, who won the reverse match in Odense earlier this season. A battle which, with a victory could send MS Odense up as bookmakers’ favorite for the division’s 3rd space, despite a mediocre season, which has had the club tempted a life near the bottom most of the time.
