Our goal is to win against Umm Salal: Al Wakrah coach Marquez


Al Wakrah coach Marquez Lopez spoke to the media ahead of their 2020-21 season QNB Stars League Week 3 match against Umm Salal.

“There was nothing new in the preparations for this match as it is more like the scenario of our previous meeting with Al Duhail, mainly in terms of time constraints. The three days leading up to the match included two days of recovery and one day to prepare for the match.

“We realise that the confrontation is like the rest of the league matches and we strive to achieve victory and reap the three points to continue positive results.

“All players made great efforts in the last match against Al Duhail, so the recovery period was an inevitable necessity. Everyone has to catch a breath and regain fitness. But this is not only the case of Al Wakrah, but about all teams.

“There are no injuries. Some of our players have recovered from minor bruises they suffered in the last round,” said Marquez.
