We must play with full strength: Al Ahli coach Macala


Al Ahli coach Milan Macala spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 13 match against Qatar SC.

“The match against Qatar SC will be tough for us, particularly since we’ll be without some players. However, we continued our training and will try to field the best possible squad.

“Our squad was in back full string only two days ago and that’s a difficult situation for any coach. Qatar SC have some good players and they’ve achieved some outstanding results this season.

“They’re a tough side that can’t be taken lightly. Any team will’ve its ups and downs in a league competition, and that’ll reflect on their performances. We need to play with our full physical and technical strength.

“I’m not looking for excuses. I’m talking about my team’s situation. We’re a team without many options and any change affects us, but we’ll make a difference.

“We may miss injured player John Benson. But we’ve an option. We may change our tactics, prompted by the mistakes that we committed during last week’s QSL Cup Round 3 match against Al Khor, which we lost 1-3,” said Macala.
