Crespo: We didn’t hold on to the score…

Al Duhail Head Coach Hernan Crespo described the team’s defeat this evening to Al Wakra as unexpected, and the coach said in post match press conference: “I am disappointed for this start. I think our team started the match by implementing the game plan we had set for them, however we didn’t manage to keep the result and we couldn’t achieve the goals we were aiming for in this match.

Crespo said: “Of course, Al Wakra played a good game, but I feel that today we played against ourselves and did not take advantage of our chances.”

Crespo continued by saying: It is important for me to say that after many years of experience in the field of football that first matches usually have an unexpected result and do not come according to the plan and view set, but many teams start to develop and achieve positive results after the first match in the league.

Crespo concluded: We must continue to work and correct our mistakes. Also our players must give a 110% of their efforts on and off the field.
