We’re trying to put pressure on rivals: Al Ahli coach Macala


Al Ahli coach Milan Macala spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 15 match against Al Gharafa.

“Al Gharafa are strong and fierce competitors though they lost to Al Sadd by a 1-8 margin in the last round. Our performance has improved in the recent times. We are unbeaten in seven matches. We won five of them and drew the rest. We hope to finish in a creditable position.

“Our goal from the beginning of the season was to avoid relegation. Now that we are in safe zone, we are trying to put pressure on the competitors and we are seeking a top-four position.

“I am happy that we will be able to field Ahmed Suhail. I watched him in action in Qatar’s friendly with Syria. He is a good player. It is good that there are many young players in the squad,” said Macala.
