‘Nothing personal’ — Coach Dooley on Schrock not being called up

Are Johor Darul Ta’zim capable of pulling off the impossible at Gyeongnam FC?

Azkals coach Thomas Dooley gave a statement to FOX Sports PH that it’s nothing personal on Schrock’s non-inclusion in the squad this coming international break and reasoned it’s because the squad needs a team player.

The national team had a mid-day training session this Saturday at McKinley Stadium in preparation for the friendly against Fiji on March 22 and the last and crucial qualifier against Tajikistan on March 27.

The squad were made up mainly of players currently based in the Philippines with most of the overseas-based players scheduled to arrive this coming week.

In their absence, other players who did not receive a call-up joined the training session to fill-in.
