Difficult, but we’re the closest to win: Al Sadd coach Xavi


Al Sadd coach Xavi Hernandez spoke to the media ahead of their 2019-20 QNB Stars League Week 8 match against Al Ahli.

“Al Ahli are a good team, they have good new signings, I know their coach well. The game will be very difficult, although we are the closest to win, but we have to show it on the pitch.

“We learned a lot after the two matches of Al Hilal in the AFC Champions League. The most important thing is we have learnt how to take advantage of mistakes and negative points.

“I am proud of what the players have done, we were better than Al Hilal. The defeat in the first leg was the reason for the exit after playing with only 10 players in that game,” said Xavi.
