We’re ready to face Al Duhail: Al Sadd coach Ferreira


Al Sadd coach Jesualdo Ferreira spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League match against Al Duhail, rescheduled from Week 9. The kick-off is at 18:30 at the Al Sadd Stadium on Tuesday, 11th December.

“Our players do not need any psychological preparation for this game. They know how important the match is and both teams have a great desire to win.

“The players have had regular training and there was no special training for this match. Everyone knows that the game pits the two best teams in Qatar. The difference between us is only one point and that makes the game difficult.

“All our matches against Al Duhail were exciting and full of goals, but unfortunately we were not happy with those matches because they beat us in many games.

“I do not agree that the recent results of Al Duhail were due to injuries. Why do you talk about injuries? The winners of this game may determine who will be the best.

“We are under more pressure than Al Duhail. They are the leaders and won the league title more than once. And regardless of injuries, they are in a better position.

“I wish our fans turn out in large numbers and we need their support,” said Ferreira.
