Amor: Darwin Olympic won’t be easy


Adelaide United coach, Guillermo Amor, says his players are preparing for a tough test against Darwin Olympic when the Reds begin their Westfield FFA Cup defence next week.

With Adelaide United beginning their Westfield FFA Cup defence in Darwin next Wednesday, Reds’ coach, Guillermo Amor, says the squad are not taking their opposition, Darwin Olympic, lightly despite Olympic being Northern Territory’s first FFA Cup representative.

“People might think the match will be an easy one, but it won’t be and it’s important we remember that,” Amor said.

“I don’t know what level Darwin Olympic will be at, but we’re working on our tactics and learning what we can about our opposition.”

Speaking ahead of the match, Amor said his team are preparing thoroughly across all facets of the game to ensure they’re primed for anything Olympic could throw at United.

“(The game against Darwin Olympic) will be an interesting game and an important one,” Amor said.

“Our idea is to go in with a good mentality because it’s crucial for the club, the supporters, and the fans.

“We’re being sure to prepare 100 per cent for the match and our friendly game against Adelaide Blue Eagles was a good, strong performance (ahead of Darwin).

“We trained this morning and the team was fantastic. We have no problems and the players are in a great condition. This group of players is special and they’re very professional and their dedication is phenomenal.

“We have a group of winners here at the club. What’s difficult is the players find it hard to relax because their minds are always thinking of our objectives.”
