Our goal is victory and a top-four finish: Al Rayyan U-23 coach Souza


Al Rayyan Under-23 coach Gilson Souza spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 22 match against Qatar SC.

“We are through with our AFC Champions League third-round engagement and now we are fully focused on our QNB Stars League game against Qatar SC. We will try hard to win. Otherwise, we will make things difficult for ourselves as far as top-four finish is concerned.

“We have some injury concerns, but we will prepare the players to face Qatar SC, who are going through a difficult situation. But that does not concern me. We will focus on achieving our target of finishing among the top four.

“Losing Tuesday’s AFC Champions League game against the UAE’s Al Wahda will have a negative impact on our players. But as professionals, they have to think high and bring out their best so that we stay in the top four with a good result,” said Souza.
