Eventhough Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) head coach Mario Gomez played their reserve players in their 3-0 defeat Malaysia Cup Group C match against Perak, head coach Mario Gomez said he sees the team as one team, and there is no such thing as first or second team.

Gomez who was disappointed with the result said the players didn't play well on Saturday night and will have to improve in their next match against PKNS this Wednesday.

"We made some mistakes after the first goal and it was also difficult to play with ten players. 

"We know Perak but what's important is JDT. When you're in JDT, there is only word - Win," he said to reporters during a press conference after the match.

When queried about S. Chanturu dismissal for his altercation with Perak's centre-back Thiago Aquino, the Argentinian felt it wasn't a red card.

"For me, it's not red card. Another player from Perak (Didn't identify the player) made a very strong challenge but no yellow or red card."

He said the players who played today will be rested and further reiterated that he doesn't  want to talk about first or second team.

"There is only one team. I don't care who plays, I don't see it as first team or second team. For me, whoever you are, your performance must be good for every match."
