“One good result will see a big turnaround. It’s a matter of time which we surely want it to be in our next game,” he said.

“We [players] are equally worried as much as the fans are. They should not give up with their support for the team. With cool heads and the right approach, this team will bounce back to our best because we have the quality,” the centre-back added.
