Whilst Hamroun also was clear on the objectives of Al Sadd this term. “For Al Sadd we are aiming for the QSL title this season, we have a strong group of players with quality all over the pitch. We are not hiding that the league title is our aim.”

Hamroun concluded the interview suggesting that the clash against Lekhwiya will be an entertaining encounter. “I have seen Lekhiwya play twice so far, and they look like one of the strongest teams in the league along with us. That is why this match will be important. We have the quality to beat them. Al Sadd has to manage the game to get the win, but that is why it will be so interesting to watch.”
