‘The goals will come’: Kenwyne Jones vows to fire Al Jazira up the AGL table
By John McAuley (The National)


Kenwyne Jones is confident Al Jazira have the talent to turn around their season having seen enough positives during his debut on Friday.

The Cardiff City striker joined the club last week on loan until the end of the campaign and has been tasked with scoring the goals to lift Jazira from their current position of 10th in the Arabian Gulf League.

Jones did not find the net in his first match although he played a key role in the 2-2 draw at Al Wasl, helping create his new side’s second goal. The Abu Dhabi club, who also had coach Henk ten Cate in the dugout for the first time, twice took the lead despite being largely outplayed by their fourth-placed hosts, but showed enough fight to suggest they can soon climb the table.

Jones agrees, with the Trinidad and Tobago captain sure Jazira possess enough ability to improve upon what has been a hugely disappointing season.

“I see enough room for progress, I don’t see any problem for this team,” he said. “They can progress easily. We just need to tighten up a few things and we’ll be fine.

“It’s like anywhere in the world. You have moments where you lose a bit of concentration and don’t do things to stay on top of the game. But it’s OK — I believe 100 per cent in this team, we have a lot of talent.”

Jones cited the need for Jazira to be stronger in defence, with the capital club conceding from two set pieces against Wasl. They have been breached 29 times in 14 league matches this campaign — a problem that extends back to last season even though Jazira eventually finished runners-up to Al Ain.

That places more emphasis on Jones to excel up front. The former Premier League forward will carry much of the goalscoring brunt, but has Ali Mabkhout, fellow new signing Angel Lafita and either Thiago Neves or Jefferson Farfan in support.

Jazira are willing to listen to offers for Neves, while Farfan is recovering from an ankle injury. Jones, though, is convinced he can repay the faith the club have shown in him.

“I hope so, that’d be nice,” he said. “Wasl was my first time getting used to the team, the players and who we’re playing against. I feel quite positive and I’m hopeful in the next 12 to 13 games the goals will come.”

Jazira now have almost two weeks until their next match, a time in which Jones says he will use to smooth the transition to UAE football.

“It’s beautiful,” he said. “It’s important for me and the team. We have one or two injuries coming back now so the team will get stronger over the next two weeks and then we can push forward again.”

Plenty fodder for a match-fixing red flag.

Al Jazira striker Kenwyne Jones reflects on ‘special drama’ against Al Sadd

Al Jazira striker Kenwyne Jones reflects on ‘special drama’ against Al Sadd
By Matt Monaghan (sport360.com)


Centre forward Kenwyne Jones insists the high drama which saw Al Jazira secure entry into the 2016 AFC Champions League made the triumph all the sweeter.

Tuesday’s undulating play-off at home to Qatari favourites Al Sadd was decided 5-4 in a shootout after a 2-2 draw at the end of normal time was only guaranteed by a last-gasp penalty save from UAE No1 Ali Khaseif to deny Khalfan Ibrahim.

“It was a one-off game and we knew we had to put everything into it,” said Cardiff City loanee Jones.

“Of course, we would have liked to finish it in the 90 minutes – but who said doing it easy is ever that sweet?

“Congratulations to everyone in the club and the fans of Al Jazira.

“It had exactly what every exciting game should have. It had thrills and spills, almost a good ending then a twist before the fairytale in which we went through.

“There were special moments in the penalty shootout through our goalkeeper and captain (Khaseif). Congratulations to him.

“I hope this pushes us on for the rest of the season.”

The Pride of Abu Dhabi forgot their painful domestic form to go through during a heart-racing evening. Right-back Khalid Sabeal gifted Sadd’s Hamza Senhadji the opener, prior to Jones’ headed leveller just before the break.

UAE striker Ali Mabkhout’s fine free-kick appeared to be sending the hosts through, only for Senhadji to strike late to complete his brace and Ibrahim to miss from 12 yards.

The shootout saw ex-Barcelona and Spain midfielder Xavi belie his experience as one of the most-decorated players in history to balloon over the opener for Sadd, with both sides making further misses before the visitors’ two-goal hero Senhadji smashed decisively against the bar.

Jazira fell at the same stage last year to Uzbekistan’s Bunyodkor.

Now, they head into Group C alongside Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal, Iran’s Tractor Sazi and Uzbekistan’s Pakhtakor and Jones is looking forward to the challenge.

He said: “It is an exciting time. The AFC Champions League is another competition, maybe it might be a bit more strategic. It is home and away, you play for points and at home you try to win your games. It is going to be a fantastic journey. I think there are a lot of young players and new players in the squad for this competition. We are just going to work hard and try to enjoy it.”

Jones captains Trinidad and Tobago, featured in the 2006 World Cup for his nation and has battled Premier League defences at Southampton, Sunderland, Stoke City and Cardiff. He equates the engrossing one-off contest favourably to those experiences when asked to compare them.

“This game was right up there as it got us into the AFC Champions League,” said the 31-year-old. “It is just as important. This is a new place for me and I am happy to be part of the history we are making this year. Long may that continue.”

I have listened to some of our footballers being interviewed,and sometimes wonder,why some are incapable of putting 2 lines together.I even wonder if our english has got worse.It's time to give our ballers some practice in english speaking,if their vocabulary is poor then it will be difficult to to be articulate.It's is sometimes embarrassing to listen to some interviews.I listened to Tasha St.Louis and she was so good in an interview,I suppose it's down to education.

I think it's because he just had a new born earlier this week right around that time.
