We must play with high spirit: Umm Salal coach Ben Askar


Umm Salal coach Aziz Ben Askar spoke to the media ahead of their 2019-20 QNB Stars League Week 17 match against Al Shahania.

“We are ready for Al Shahania match. It is not at all easy for both teams, it is a six-point game. We must continue to work in the same way. I told our players that it is necessary to keep working with the same enthusiasm because we represent the club’s future and not only ourselves.

“Umm Salal have a clear target, it is to stay in the first division. We have great motivation. From one game to another, we are working hard to reach this target. I also told the players about it in order to work hard in the remaining six matches, starting with the Al Shahania game. We must play with high spirit and great determination.

“Everyone is fighting for a specific target. Just like Al Sadd are competing for the league title, Al Shahania and Umm Salal are battling to avoid the relegation, so we should focus only on ourselves. I am happy with the players and their discipline during training. We have 23 players working hard, so we must keep fighting till the end,” said Ben Askar.
