Bashundhara Kings captain Daniel Colindres said that he along with other boosters will fight to put Bashundhara Kings in the international arena.

“Professionally, it seems to me that I have met expectations in Bangladesh playing a couple of seasons, together with the team we have achieved great things and will fight to put Bashundhara Kings in the international arena. Outside of the professional, I have put my experience here in Bangladesh successfully,” he said on Tuesday. Colindres, who is now staying here in home quarantine due to pandemic coronavirus outbreak, told it while a set of questions was given to him via Kings Media Manager Ahmed Shaaek.

“The team are improved, but I think that retaining the title will be as difficult as the last year. We are fighting the top, but we lost the last two games, we are three points from the first place, we must improve some details to be on top. I hope I can see Kings as a league champions again and fighting to win the AFC Cup,” he added.

About Argentine Striker Hernan Barcos, he said, “Barcos is a great player, it is very easy to adapt to his game, even for the team because it brings a lot of quality and experience. I miss him in BPL for his qualities and leadership, but I also miss other players like Emon [Mahmud], Motin [Mia], Zoni [Masuk Mia Jony] who were out due to injury.”

While asking about his daily routine in quarantine, the captain said, “I get up, eat breakfast, exercise, bathe, eat lunch, read a little, have coffee in the afternoon, watch TV for a while, talk to my family, have dinner and go to bed to sleep. In order to maintain myself physically, every day, the physical trainer sends a message from the daily work, in the house, I have space where I carry out the exercise routine.”

About the present situation in his country, the 35-year-old forward said, “The situation in Costa Rica is complicated because the number of infections is growing. My family is fine, Thank God. Sure, it would be safer for me to be in my country.”
