Al-Sadd general manager Turki Nasser Al-Ali has described the Wolves’ upcoming game against Esteghlal as a crucial clash between two teams who are well-known in the region and beyond.
Speaking exclusively to the club website, Al-Ali said: “There is no doubt that it will be a tough match. It will be very competitive considering that both teams are similar in level. So I expect a great footballing evening where the spirit of sports will reign supreme. I also hope it ends in Al-Sadd’s favour so that we continue our campaign successfully.”
The general manager also expressed his hope that the Al-Sadd players will be at their best in a match that requires them to give a lot of effort especially as the opponent will fight hard playing at home in front of their fans.
Al-Ali also added that Al-Sadd doesnt just represent itself but Qatari football as a whole. “We need to give our best to raise the flag of our nation. We have confidence in our players’ ability to win and reach the group stage,” he said.
