We’ve prepared well: Al Arabi coach Hatem


Al Arabi coach Hatem Al Moaddeb spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 13 match against Al Sadd.

“The victory against Al Khor in the last round, which came after five successive defeats, has boosted our players’ confidence. So they’ll play more freely. On the other hand, Al Sadd will be under pressure as they’re competing for the title.

“The big defeat that we suffered at the hands of Al Sadd in the first leg of QNB Stars League is history. We’ve put it behind us. We’re now focusing on putting up a strong performance. We’ve prepared well. Results will follow.

“The match against Al Sadd is just like any other game for us. If we win, well and good. If we don’t, we’ll look to compensate for it in the next games.

“We’ll miss some important players because of injuries. But I’m confident that others will play their roles in a good way,” said Hatem.
