“We lost to Leroy George due to injury and he is a very influential player in the team”
“Our players felt tired in the second half because of the high temperature and humidity and we did not say as we did in the first half.”
“In general, I am satisfied with the outcome and the game especially as it is facing a strong opponent such Al Wasl.”
“Al Wasl has long-term players, both foreign and national, and we are working to develop our team gradually.
“The weather factor does not help us to do our best, especially at the level of foreign players, they need a time to adapt to this environment.”
