In an exclusive interview with Wiwsport, the coach of the Senegalese national team, Aliou Cissé, spoke about tactics. The opportunity for him to respond to his detractors about his changes deemed late.

After leading Senegal to the roof of Africa, winning the first CAN in the country’s history last February, coach Aliou Cissé has guided his men to a third participation in the next World Cup. The Senegalese technician is not spared criticism, however, especially on the timing of his substitutions.

“I believe the timing of my changes is the perfect timing”replies Aliou Cissé before continuing. “The mentality of the fans means that they want to see their favorite players on the pitch every time. However, I do not make changes to please this or that person. I don’t see the need to make a change when it’s not worth it. Besides, I don’t have to do it.”

he added.

The reigning African Champions coach explains his tactical changes during the second leg of the World Cup play-offs against Egypt at the Abdoulaye Wade stadium in Diamniadio where his team managed to carve out a place for Qatar 2022 by penalty shootout.

“Why change for the sake of changing? When you make a substitution, it’s because there’s a good tactical or physical reason. I repeat, I am not making changes to please the fans or the journalists. I respect the opinion of the supporters but as a coach I cannot have the same vision.concluded Aliou Cissé.
