Al-Faisaly striker Julio Tavares revealed that Al-Hilal player Bafetimbi Gomez helped him a lot in his new experience in Saudi Arabia, and described Abdulelah Al-Omari, Al-Nassr defender, as the best player in the league.
The 33-year-old striker said in an interview with the “In the Goal” program: Our start was not perfect this season due to technical changes, and we do not miss coach Chamuska, with whom we spent beautiful times, but we need time to adapt to the new coach.
Regarding the team’s upcoming participation in the AFC Champions League, he said: We are not ready for that now, but we have time to prepare and we have to focus on this tournament in order to achieve good results, and we will not fight it for the sake of participation only, but we want to go far.
The Cape Verdean international striker wished to extend his contract with Al-Faisaly, and pointed out that the Frenchman Gomez helped him a lot and gave him many technical advice. He described Abdulelah Al-Omari, the defender of Al-Nasr, as the best player in Saudi Arabia, stressing that he has a wonderful future.
