‘Let me completely enjoy this trophy’
Bashundhara Kings coach Oscar Bruzon, who will take over the reign of the Bangladesh national team today after leading his club to a second Bangladesh Premier League title yesterday, said he wants to celebrate the moment with his players and management before turning his focus to national duty.
The Spaniard, roped in temporarily by the Bangladesh Football Federation, saw champions elect Kings end the campaign with a 1-1 draw against Abahani last night.
"Let me lift the trophy of the BPL which is what I'm fighting together with our management and our boys for 13 months," Bruzon said before the trophy ceremony.
"Let me completely enjoy this trophy because there is a lot of sacrifice, effort and things going into it. Now it's time to be with my group," the Spaniard said, brushing aside questions on his upcoming task.
The 44-year-old coach said that despite the massive difference in points between the champions and the rest, it was not an easy task.
"We need to give importance to the BPL. I've said this two years before too that BPL is one of the toughest leagues in the subcontinent. It's very very difficult. It seems watching the points table that Bashundhara had an easy league but I can tell you that we have very very strong rivals in Sheikh Jamal, Ctg Abahani, Sheikh Russel, Saif," Bruzon said.
The coach also praised young and up-and-coming players for the contribution in this journey, adding that he would have been happier with a win in the season's last match.
