Pre Match Press Conference - Al Sadd


Al Sadd coach Jesualdo Ferreira asserted that his team was ready for their tough match against Qatar SC in the QNB Stars League Round 4. The ‘Match of the Week’ will kick off at 19:40 at the Al Sadd Stadium on Sunday, 15th October.

Ferreira told the pre match Press Conference that he was expecting a tough game as Qatar SC can throw up a surprise. He expressed his happiness to have his full team ready, especially with the return of Algerian striker Baghdad Bounedjah, and hoped they would continue their winning ways.

“Baghdad had missed the first three league matches with an injury. When a player is severely injured and is away for a long time, he’ll need some time to regain his form and physical fitness,” said Ferreira.

The Portuguese pointed out that Al Sadd took great advantage from the league’s stoppage.

“In fact, I wish I had all my players, including youngsters, at the team training sessions, so we could’ve our drills comprehensively,” he said.

He, however, said releasing players for national duty should not affect the team’s preparations for league fixtures.
