Umm Salal coach Aziz Ben Askar spoke to the media ahead of their 2019-20 QNB Stars League Week 20 match against Al Ahli.
“We must play with high spirit. Al Ahli are a strong side, so we must focus and work well, especially since the three points are important to us. We must strive to come out with a good result.
“We are still working to achieve our goal and we focus now particularly on this match. Things are clear to us as there are approximately five teams trying to stay in the QNB Stars League and we have to continue to work well and go through all matches with the highest degree of focus to achieve our goal.
“When you are a coach, you must work with all players, not two or three of them. We have 28 players and myself and the support staff focus on all of them and we have made some changes to compensate for the absences,” said Ben Askar.
Umm Salal player Enes Sipovic said, “Al Ahli will make every effort and stay focused in order to bag full points. I think that we have shown our ability to face all teams well, so I am confident of our ability to contain the Al Ahli attack. We know the strengths of Al Ahli and we will be ready for them.”
