We’ve to learn from mistakes and provide our best against Al Sadd: Al Ahli coach Nebojsa
Al Ahli coach Nebojsa Jovovic spoke to the media ahead of their 2019-20 QNB Stars League Week 19 match against Al Sadd.
“I will not look for excuses in the upcoming games. We know our team’s problems during the match against Al Shahania. The players must take advantage of the Al Sadd match and provide their best.
“Al Sadd are a strong team and have distinguished players who represent the national team. We respect them a lot, but that does not mean we will be pushovers. Our aim to achieve a positive result.
“After the Al Shahania match, there was no choice but to work to correct mistakes. We have a good group of players and I have big confidence in them and their abilities in order to achieve the required result.
“Last week, I worked on correcting the mistakes that we committed against Al Shahania. I asked the players to continue working to provide the best in the next stage,” said Nebojsa.
Al Ahli player Shane Lowry said, “Al Sadd match has much importance for us as we are facing one of the best teams in the league. We must use this opportunity to show the team’s personality and provide our best.
“Our focus will not be on Al Sadd’s strong attack. Football has defence and attack. The Al Ahli defence is not weak and was not responsible for the defeat against Al Shahania. The team was not good and lost the game. Now, we have to stay focused against a strong opponent.”
