We focused on boosting players’ morale: Al Khor coach Casoni


Al Khor coach Bernard Casoni spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League rescheduled match against Al Sadd, which was postponed from Week 5 because of the latter’s AFC Champions League fixture.

The kick-off is at the Al Khor Stadium at 18:30 on Wednesday, 28th November.

“We focused on boosting the players’ morale, especially since we went down fighting narrowly to leaders Al Duhail in the last round. We weren’t lucky in that match and wasted many opportunities.

“We’ll face a strong competitor that has players of great technical ability. We’ll play with the same spirit that we displayed in the Al Duhail match, where we provided a good level and were close to a drawn result. We must put in more efforts against Al Sadd.

“Iraqi professional player Ahmed Yassin regularly trains with the team and is ready to play.

“I’m seeking stability and consistency in our performance. I haven’t been thinking about relegation or play-off. Our aim is to collect maximum points and the best possible ranking in the table. We don’t even think of play-off,” said Casoni.
