Al Duhail Head Coach Hernan Crespo described the cming game versus Al Sailiya in Round 18 of the QNB Stars League as risky. The coach said in the pre-match press conference that was held at 08:30 pm yesterday in the Club’s press conference room: Very risky game which comes winning Ooredoo Cup title the first this season… we have to return with our mentality and focus to the league fixtures in order to maintain the lead.
Crespo said: All the team playing versus us are always motivated to come out with a positive result. All facts say that our match versus Al Sailiya will be difficult despite the obvious superiority of our team players whom I have confidence in their abilities to perform and present what required from them on the field of play. We are aware that Al Sailiya has changed the technical staff which will give their player spiritual push beside the fact that we are not aware of the new coach’s strategy.
Crespo continued: I can’t describe my happiness with the crowning with the Ooredoo Cup title, because we started this competition campaign without the international players, and we relied on the younger ones who got their opportunity to prove themselves, and they succeeded in appearing in a very good way and contributed to this title of course.
