Talay is eager to get the players together for the first time this year ahead of the upcoming qualification campaign.

“This week is about bringing players into our environment and see how they adapt to our playing style & philosophy,” said Talay

“We have two quality games which we can observe the players with a view towards the (AFC U-19 Championship) qualifiers.

“Every player will get the opportunity to play, so for us it is very important to identify players that can do what we ask them to do,” concluded Talay.
