Al Duhail player Karim Boudiaf expressed his confidence in the team’s ability to return to the winning track again in the Expo Stars League when they face Qatar on Saturday evening. The player, who spoke to the press conference that was held yesterday evening in the press conference room, said: We have a confrontation with a big team that has players with good levels, whether in defence or offence. We will enter it in order to achieve victory, return to the winning track again, and improve our position in the standing table. After we stumbled in the previous round and lost our match versus Umm Salal, and for this reason, we must correct the course and present the level that guarantees us the full points of the match.
Boudif added: I am happy to return to participation as well as the return of my colleague Luiz Martin. We have played together for fourteen seasons and our partnership inside the field has turned into friendship outside and we have reached the stage of complete understanding. Now, we will play a dual role, as we are helping our team to achieve the desired results, and we are also providing our assistance to the young players who are present alongside us.
Karim concluded: During the past five seasons, we have been under the pressure of continuous play due to commitments and international matches. We did not rest, especially last season when we were preparing for the FIFA World Cup. This caused me many muscle injuries, but now I am working very seriously to regain my level again and prepare for the upcoming competitions.
