"I am okay with it. In July all players (in the Selangor team) are important because everyone needs to play. My teammates are ready.

"I will play but surely with so many matches, I will be tired. All players will be fielded, and I hope in July we win all our matches," said the 32-year old Spaniard.

Commenting on the win; the former Kitchee SC praised the improvements shown by his teammates.

"Today, I see the team displaying a good attitude, playing very well, keeping more of the ball.
