Sobah Mohamed, head coach of Green Street football club has said that the upcoming football season "is going to be very competitive."
Speaking to RaajjeMV about the club's training for the season, Sobah said that Green Street, despite being one of the lesser known clubs in the local football scene, "will not be an easy team to beat."
"All the clubs look very strong this year. No club should try to take the four big trophies of the season," said Sobah.
Noting that clubs "become big because of the media," he added that this is "not the case when these teams go on the pitch."
Speaking on the team list, Sobah said that the team has a number of important local players, as well as foreign players.
"Our players have played in various leagues, they can put up a good fight against the bigger clubs," Sobah said.
A number of players from the first division have joined Green Street for the upcoming football season, which is to kick off this month.
Sobah said that their biggest target right now is "to at least get a point" on February 25, against Victory Sports Club.
