8 October 2019 – The Kosovo National Team’s Head Coach, Bernard Challandes held a press conference prior to the gathering of Dardanians for this month’s two games against Gibraltar in the friendly match of 10 October, and against Montenegro within the Euro 2020 qualifiers on 14 October. Kosovo will play both these matches before their fans at the Fadil Vokrri Stadium.
Challandes noted that the friendly match against Gibraltar will serve him in some tactical aspects as well as be a good opportunity for players who have had less room to play. Meanwhile, for the match against Montenegrins he said that it will be very important but also very difficult, assessing Montenegro as a very strong opponent.
“We are starting a week that is very important to us. The match against Gibraltar is an opportunity to clear things up in my head and at the same time it will be a good opportunity to give players chance to play and who had less space to play. Meanwhile, in terms of match against Montenegro, it is the most important in the new history of Kosovo football. We must win over them to continue the dream of qualification. But we have to be careful because Montenegro is a very good team. If we do not defend ourselves together then we will have difficulties” Challandes said.

Meanwhile, the Dardanians held their first training session at the Fadil Vokrri Stadium and will continue today with full intensity.
