Newly appointed Warriors coach Karim Bencherifa has made an instant impact, after guiding his team to a 2-0 win over Hougang in his first match in charge on Monday.
After this match, the Morroccan has expessed his ambitions with Warriors FC in TNP’s Singapore.
Bencherifa said: “I have never lost touch with Singapore or football here. I visit almost on a monthly basis and I go to stadiums to watch S.League matches.”
“It’s not easy to take over a club in mid-season, and it’s even harder when it’s near the end of the season, but I’m quite lucky because there is very good unity, professionalism and team spirit in the squad and this creates a healthy atmosphere.”
“My coaching philosophy is simple — a football team need four pillars to perform consistently. They are quality players, high level of fitness, a good game plan that suits the players and a healthy team spirit.”
“We are not thinking about the title right now. We just have to focus on each game without being distracted and try our best and let’s see how far we can go.”
“As for next season, I don’t think it’s the right time to think about it as we still have matches to play this season.”
“My daily job is to try and improve each one of the principles mentioned above. And if we manage to make use of the four pillars in each game, then you can expect good surprises from us.”
