Jamie Day expects hard work from his charges in the upcoming weeks in order for them to get fitter and stronger. Day informed this to the media in Dhaka Wednesday afternoon, ahead of the national residential camp at BKSP in Savar, starting Thursday. 

After arriving in the capital Monday alongside Bangladesh assistant coach Stuart Watkiss, Day is likely to officially begin his duty Saturday, ahead of the Asian Games and Saff Championship, slated for August and September this year.

"We are really looking forward to the challenge we got ahead," said Day following a meeting with the national team management committee. "It will take a lot of hard work from us and the players to hopefully make Bangladesh a better football team."

He continued, "I watched the last game. Technically, obviously there are some good players in Bangladesh. We need to make them fitter and stronger and that's something we will look over the next two-three weeks. We want to make them more organised."

Day also talked in details about his coaching style. "I like to play attacking football. So I like to score goals and win games. I will never go out to draw a game and defend," he said before adding, "(At) times (it) will be 3-2 or 4-3, sometimes we will be at the wrong end of the result. Our players will try to press the opponents, be confident in possession, create opportunities and score goals."

This will be the 38-year old Day’s first international assignment in south Asian football but Stuart does have the experience of coaching Indian side Kalyani Bharat FC for a season in 2014-15.

Stuart, the 52-year old former Wolverhampton Wanderers defender, said, “We are very conscious that we have some tournaments to be prepared for. We hope to see an improvement with the tournaments coming around. We want to improve the players individually and collectively."

Before handing over the Bangladesh jerseys to the coaching duo, the national team management committee chairman Kazi Nabil Ahmed informed that they will arrange a two-week long residential camp in Qatar next month.
