Much will depend on the focus of players: Al Duhail coach Maaloul


Al Duhail coach Nabil Maaloul spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 13 game against Al Khor.

“We return to the league after the break and now we will play the second game in the second leg. We know that we will face a team with a competitive spirit and the game will be difficult.

“Despite the injuries that hit the team strongly, we’re still the leaders. The injury to Nam Tae-Hee is a big blow to the team. We will deal with this injury as we dealt with all the injuries that have occurred previously to our distinguished players.

“There is no easy game in the league. Much will depend on the focus of players who enter the field. We must maintain our composure on the pitch and work hard to achieve the goals.

“We have been drawn into a strong group in the AFC Champions League, but I trust the competitive spirit of my players and the desire to continue to achieve positive results. It will definitely have a big role to play in deciding the matches on the pitch,” said Maaloul.
