Cabrera familiar to Jamal, Tariq

The newly-appointed head coach Javier Cabrera said on Friday that he knew the national football team’s two expatriate stars captain Jamal Bhuyan and Tariq Kazi, even, the 37-year-old Spaniard also had a positive outlook for these key members of the national team.

“I know about Jamal and Tariq; Jamal from Denmark and Tariq from Finland. Jamal is a very important asset for the team, a leader, a good reference for the youngsters. In the case of Tariq, he has a lot of potentials and I’m looking forward to having a chance of training them,” Cabrera told the media on Friday.  

 The 37-year-old Spaniard has started visiting clubs from Friday to know better about football models and culture here. As a part of his plan, he witnessed Dhaka Abahani’s practice session on this day.

“I think, my first priority is to understand the football context of the country. And the best option for this is to meet all professional clubs. The visits to clubs are important for me because it will help me understand what types of work they (club officials) are doing. Of course, I need some time to see these players,” he concluded.
