Qatar SC difficult opponents, but we hope to win: Al Duhail coach Faria


Al Duhail coach Rui Faria spoke to the media ahead of their 2019-20 QNB Stars League Week 12 match against Qatar SC.

“The match will definitely be difficult for us. For that matter, all league matches are strong and we will work hard to achieve victory as well as full points, and also to provide an enjoyable game to the fans.

“We will face an opponent much improved in the recent times. Looking at their statistics in the last four games, we find that they won thrice and drew once. We hope the scenario of the first match between us in the league’s first leg will not get repeated, when we pulled off victory at the death. I hope we will win this time.

“Everyone knows that Almoez Ali has offer from outside, which is a good thing for the player and for the team. But until now, the matter has not been decided, but the option is there.

“In football, players can have periods of different levels. They can offer a special match and it appears less in another one. We, in Al Duhail, always want the best. Our contract with (Mario) Mandzukic was to increase our offensive options and make our capabilities stronger.

“When Al Duhail compete in any competition we enter to win the title, but we have to think about each match separately. In football, you cannot know what can happen in the future and there are unexpected things that may happen. But in general, we must work continuously in order to achieve our targets,” said Faria.
