Qatar SC coach Ze Ricardo spoke to the media ahead of their 2021-2022 season QNB Stars League Week 2 match against Al Sadd.
“Facing Al Sadd in the second week of the league is not easy, especially since they are the defending champions. I see that all teams are difficult this season because they have prepared well.
“We are very excited about the encounter and we will play against a great team and we know that and our team is also a team to be reckoned with. We have to be highly focused and carry out the tactical duties well.
“Of course, we have now overcome the problem of choosing the squad that occurred due to the absences. In this background, we look forward to a good match and a performance that meets our ambitions,” said Ricardo.
Qatar SC player Sebastian Soria said, “An important match awaits us, where we need to present what we have trained on and off the field. There must be more co-ordination among us especially since Al Sadd are a big team.
“With each passing day, the team is witnessing a remarkable improvement. Even if we do not get a positive result, we must always look for development and feel this improvement within the team’s unity.
“I am very happy to return to Qatar SC and I have always had good relations with the club. I keep the wonderful memories and we work hard to achieve our ambitions. Not everything we dream of can be achieved, but with diligence we are getting closer to achieving our goals. I always try to set a good example for the young players and make sure to help them with everything and I spoke with the coach about my desire to achieve something this season.”
