Al Arabi always tough opponents: Umm Salal coach Caneda


Umm Salal coach Raul Caneda spoke to the media ahead of their 2019-20 QNB Stars League Week 3 match against Al Arabi.

“Al Arabi are always tough opponents. We must make great efforts to win against them. We must win this game. Each match is different, but we know how to deal with Al Arabi. Both teams have good players.

“I hope we score our first victory sooner rather than later (Umm Salal drew 2-2 with Al Rayyan and then lost 0-1 to Al Khor). We’re going step by step, we’ll do what it takes to register victories.

“It’ll be difficult to play against Al Arabi and their die-hard supporters. But it’s good to play in front of many fans and I love to play before a good crowd.

“We faced Al Rayyan at the beginning of this season in front of their fans and still drew the match,” said Caneda.
