Abdelkarim Hassan: It will be a crucial game against Al-Gharafa, we hope to get three points

Al-Sadd left-back Abdelkarim Hassan shared his thoughts ahead of the upcoming QNB Stars League Round 9 game against Al-Gharafa.

Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Abdelkarim said: “The next game against Al-Gharafa will be crucial for both because of the gap in points, and we will try to extend the lead.”

“Al Gharafa have had strong performances lately. I wish the best for both but I hope we get three points. The match wont be easy; Al Gharafa is a much improved team, playing beautiful football.
We will try our hardest to get three points.”

As for the lead at the top, he said: “Of course, the four-point difference is important for us, and it matters for us to increase the gap, as it offers us more comfort.”

Recently my performance was not as good as fans are used to and there was a difficult situation for me, but I have been able to regroup and do better. It s a long season and hopefully and I can keep giving my best to help the team.”
