Watford coach sets Yaser Asprilla as an example for his teammates

“Until Yaser’s goal we were on top and we were the team that wanted to win,” said coach Ismaël, who regretted the defeat against Norwich after having made the effort and managed to tie the game 2-2 with the Colombian’s goal in the 72nd minute. minutes. Watford with 41 points is in 12th place in the second English division and the objective is to finish as high as possible, which is why the coach asked for more attitude from his team and highlighted what Yaser has done.

Valérien made it clear that they lacked luck after having tied to prevent Norwich from going ahead, since the Colombian’s score motivated them, but it was not enough. “We got back into the game (after Yaser’s goal), Norwich were completely out of the game. Out of nowhere came a lucky third goal for them. But the fourth goal for us was really painful.”

“Yaser Asprilla’s wonderful goal was in vain”

This is how Watford’s official website started the match report. Asprilla’s left foot shot from outside the area made it 2-2 with almost 30 minutes remaining in the game. However, the team did not take advantage of the motivation provided by Yaser’s score and in the end the coach questioned the attitude of some of his team, using what the young Colombian did as an example.

“When you make substitutions you expect the players to contribute something to the team. A substitute like Yaser paid off, he scored an incredible goal tonight, so you have to give him credit. The two positive things, a fantastic goal and we came back from 2-0 down. But it is only consistency that does not prevent us from finishing strong.” stated the DT.

Furthermore, he added that it was necessary for some of those who came in from the bench to show the same attitude of the one they hope will become a top player in the future. “Everyone has to be up there and help the team win, especially when they come off the bench to help make an extra effort. Because the others have been running for 60, 70, 80 minutes and we need everyone to help.”

Yaser equals his best scoring record and goes for more

In addition, he adds 5 assists.

The effectiveness he had against Norwich was overwhelming, a single shot that ended in a goal. Furthermore, of the five changes that the coach made, he was the one that received the best rating with just 29 minutes on the field (6.8 by Sofascore).
