Ready for Al Gharafa match: Al Rayyan coach Aguirre


Al Rayyan coach Diego Aguirre spoke to the media ahead of their 2020-21 season QNB Stars League Week 2 match against Al Gharafa.

“We have to do what we have to do especially since we had a difficult start to the season as a result of losing some players. But we should not say it as an excuse and we should focus only on presenting a strong and good match, because simply we must believe in our strength as a team. We have great players and we have to continue what we did last season.

“We must admit that the Al Gharafa match is difficult, especially since they are one of the best teams. We must remember what happened last season, as Al Rayyan lost just one game and that was against Al Gharafa. Therefore, we must be wary of them.

“We must definitely finish the first three weeks of action with maximum number of points. After that, there will be a break. We must utilize the break and see if there are players joining the team during that time. We have to face the reality,” said Aguirre.
