The lack of defense is the cause of JDT’s failure

By news-admin – Forty mistakes became one of the main causes of defeat 1-3 Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) during a match against Kedah in the Group C group at Stadium Darul Aman yesterday.

According to the JDT Team Manager, Luciano Figueroa, they have tried their best and have done well, but the mistakes made by the defense are among the causes of their loss.

“We tried to give a good match, but after lagging in the second half, we failed to get extra goals to match against Kedah’s goals.”

“Kedah played well with two goals, first goal in the first half and second goal at the early part of the second half, it put pressure on JDT to score a goal.”

“We have more than 60 per cent control of the ball, we have done a lot of right attempts to shoot at the goal and play well, but the problem is our defense made easy mistakes.”

Luciano was also disappointed with the misunderstanding of his unidentified defender until he opened the Kedah side with a goal.

Luciano also assured that JDT will rise by further reinforcing the defense.

“We can not have a situation where strikers and midfield players play well but defenders make easy mistakes that bring down the team. Wait and see and we’ll make a move forward.”
