H.E. Humaid Al Tayer, Chairman of Al Nasr Football Company, thanked the Italian Chizari Prandelli for his period as the first team manager at the inaugural press conference of Serbian coach Ivan Jovanovic.
"I am happy to see him again. When I spoke with him, he assured me that he considers his past interest with Al Nasr not over and wants to come back to complete his three-season career in which he has won many titles," he said.
Al Tayer confirmed that the Board of Directors of Al Nasr football company are working as a team and they provide all support to the first team and ensure the achievement of good results, titles in all the competitions and return to the victories. "Regarding the demand of some fans to dismiss the administration of Al Nasr, The management is close to the fans of the club and there is continuous communication and we hope that the coming period will be positive and that everyone will be with the team to get out of this hurdle. The decision to dimiss the board is only by H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid, the club president.
For his part, the Serbian coach expressed his happiness to return to Al Nasr and said: "I spent more than 3 seasons with the Al Nasr and found a great cooperation from everyone and I look forward to continue to work in this way in the coming period until we reach the team to safety.
"Every coach has his own way of managing the team, but previous experience and familiarity will be one of the most important factors to overcome the difficulties," Jovanovic said. I did not hesitate to agree to the request of Al Nasr to return again and I am ready to challenge despite the short period before the confrontation against Al Wahda team.:
"In the coming period, I look forward to competing vigorously for the league championship and qualifying for the Gulf Cup semifinals, and I hope that all the injured players will be back in time for the team to be ready for all matches."
"In collaboration with all the players within the first team, we will be ready to play all the matches with determination, strength and a genuine desire to win and improve the team's performance and when we reach this stage we will achieve everything we look forward to."
