Al Duhail Coach Hernan Crespo expressed his confidence in his players’ ability to return to victories in the upcoming confrontation versus Al Gharafa scheduled next Friday evening in the league. Speaking to the press conference that took place at 08:30 pm yesterday in the Club’s press conference hall, the coach said: We have another opportunity to show the team identity and overcome what happened in Al Sailiya game in the Amir Cup quarterfinal round, which was an accident after the team performed a good level, but lost on penalties, and now we will face a great team, Al Gharafa, and after that we will face Al Rayyan, and we will rest for a few days and return to play three matches to conclude the league. All calculations are still in the hands of our players and we are looking forward to winning this coming game.
Crespo said: Our players showed their professionalism since the start of the season and were on time and succeeded in appearing well in all rounds of the league and other competitions and they were up to the responsibility and even our match versus Al Sailiya we deserved to win and we can return to the match to see the opportunities we missed, but now is another tournament and the players are thirsty for victory in the league, which was absent from the club in the recent seasons,. This of course is the culmination of the players’ efforts after the good performance they showed throughout the season.
Crespo concluded: I fully trust the team players and know that they will perform well in the next match. I also know that Al Arabi Club is on our tail and they need to win all their remaining matches in order to catch up with us, and we, in turn, will provide all the performance that guarantees us winning the league title.
