We’ve focused on psychological aspects of players: Al Kharaitiyat fitness coach Badarudeen


Al Kharaitiyat’s fitness coach Ahmed Badarudeen spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 12 match against Al Sadd.

“We have focused on the psychological aspects of players and the team is preparing hard for the Al Sadd game. We have noticed that the players are doing a great deal of training, but in the games they show fear, not because of the opponents, but because of the defeats.

“When we look at the rankings, the teams that concede many goals are in a bad situation. The problem may be that some clubs focus more on attackers when they attract players and ignore the line of defence.

“The management has contracted with good players, both overseas and Qataris. There are still 11 matches. We have to make up for the setbacks in the first leg and put in more efforts. Then, we will have a great opportunity to stay in the league,” said Badarudeen.
