We’re able to beat Al Ahli: Qatar SC coach Younes


Qatar SC coach Younes Ali spoke to the media ahead of their 2020-21 season QNB Stars League Week 19 match against Al Ahli.

“We realise the importance of the match, so our preparations were done with great energy to score a victory and all of us in the team family will fight it out to achieve what we want.

“We were somewhat affected by the absence of a number of our players in our previous match against Al Sailiya and full-strength squad now will have a positive impact. It is a morale booster ahead of the match.

“Al Ahli are a strong team with very good players. They have a highly-qualified coach and presented good levels through which they achieved what they deserved in the league (top-four position). They did exceptionally well against Al Gharafa and Al Khor, and those results doubled their chances to be in the top four.

“In general, we are able to achieve victory, especially with a state of optimism and my great confidence in the players. We are striving hard to accomplish our mission of gaining a good position in the league,” said Younes.

Qatar SC captain Mohammed Salem said, “The match will play a crucial role in determining our chance to be in te top-four bracket. We are facing a team that has  strong defence and offence, and has the speed to move to attack well, but we have the ability to stop it and collect full points.

“Our preparations went off with great enthusiasm and focus. We will seize any opportunity to achieve our ambition and reap the fruits of our efforts throughout the season.”
