“Excited to start preparations for next season”

Hyderabad FC head coach Manuel Marquez recently expressed his desire to kick off preparations for the upcoming ISL season as soon as possible.

“I have been in contact with the owners, staff, the players and the fans of Hyderabad FC, as we all begin our preparations for the new season. Life is almost back to normal here in Spain, mainly because most people are vaccinated and I think that is the key for most countries. When it comes to vacations, Menorca in the Balearic Islands is what I consider a paradise, where I can disconnect from the world. I would love to visit that place soon but a part of me wants to be back in India to start our preparations for the next season, which is just as exciting,” he told in an interview from Spain.
