Our players are determined to react against Al Duhail: Al Khor coach Sellimi


Al Khor coach Adel Sellimi spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 2 match against Al Duhail.

“It’s good that our players are determined to react against Al Duhail and achieve a positive result. Our task is not easy and we will face a team that had not lost a game throughout last season’s league competition. We will fight it out on the pitch.

“The defeat to Al Arabi in our first match was tough to digest because of the good performance provided by our players. However, that did not make great psychological impact on my wards and we have closed the chapter. The focus is on the next game against Al Duhail.

“Al Duhail are one of the strong contenders for the AFC Champions League title. The absence of one or two players due to injuries will not affect them,” said Sellimi.

Al Khor player Hilal Mohammed said, “It’s still the early stages of QNB Stars League and we are not adversely affected by the loss in the opening match. Al Duhail play at a high level. We hope to provide a good level, having corrected the mistakes we committed against Al Arabi.

“No doubt, it will be a tough task for us. We will not play for a draw, we target only victory.”
