Al-Sadd defender Tarek Salman described his happiness after his side defeated Al-Rayyan 1-0 in the Qatar Clasico on Wednesday.
Speaking after the game, Tarek said: “Congratulations to Al-Sadd fans on the win, and I want to thank my teammates for the strong performance which they showed today on the pitch, in a really tough game.”
He added: “Al-Rayyan played a very good game but in these kinds of tough games, it’s always small details that clinch the result and our team managed to get out of the game with three points.”
Asked if the result was fair, Tarek said: “I think it’s fair because we wasted many deserved chances throughout the game. It was possible for us to win by three or four goals if we had used those chances that came our way. In the end, what’s important is to win and continue at the top of the table. We will continue working until we win the league title this season.”
