Sergi Saldana: We don't want to disappoint our fans

by Nathan Linley

Manchester prepare to host matchday two of the newly-reformed National Futsal Series (NFS) and will face Loughborough Students' on Sunday at the National Cycling Centre.
 
After a disappointing 6-4 defeat against ProFutsal London on the opening day of the new campaign, the Blues will be looking to bounce back as quickly as possible when the Midlands-outfit arrive in Greater Manchester.
 
The visitors fell to a 3-2 loss versus Bolton during the first game day in Kent and like Manchester, will be wanting to turn their fortunes around in their second game of the season.
 
Both sides are without a win but after narrow defeats in their first games, the league is still wide open with plenty of points available to collect during the new NFS campaign.
 
Head coach Sergi Saldana spoke with Manchesterfutsal.com as he looked forward to being back at the National Cycling Centre. He made a plea to his players regarding the home supporters.
 
"We will play at home and of course, we don't want to disappoint our fans. I'm pretty sure that my players will give their best to have our first win", said Saldana.
 
"Loughborough is in a similar situation after the unexpected defeat against Bolton. This shows that in that league everything can happen and we have to very focused on how to play against them, a very intense team. 
 
"We will keep trying to do the same things that we did against ProFutsal but trying to take fewer risks in possession of the ball. Hopefully, it will be enough to beat them and offer a great day to MFC supporters."
 
The Blues' game is the third game of the afternoon and will kick off at 2:50 pm on Sunday. Tickets can be purchased for the event here.
