Abdelkarim Hassan: Our group is not easy, but we are fully prepared

Al-Sadd defender Abdelkarim Hassan spoke of his readiness of his side ahead of their game against Al-Ain on Matchday 3 of the 2020 AFC Champions League.

Speaking during the pre-match press conference: “Our group is not easy, but Al-Sadd is fully prepared and we hope to qualify as the group toppers. We’ll take every match separately, as they come.”

The Al-Sadd star added: “We have benefitted a lot from the resumption of the Qatari league and the early start to training, and this gives us more readiness than the rest of the teams.”

Abdelkarim promised the Al-Sadd fans that the team will give their best, adding: “We aspire to be the best and hope for success from God. Certainly, we will miss the fans, we would love to have them even if they are only 20% (of the capacity) but most importantly, the game will be played on the pitch and we are ready for it.”
