Al Nasr 1st football team Head Caoch "Dan Petrescu" said during the pre match press conference of the round of 21 of the Arabian Gulf League that the upcoming match against Al Shabab in the Arabian Gulf League does not come within the preparations of the semi-final of the President's Cup, which will be held next month April 20 against Hatta. It is an important league match and after that there is no match for a long time despite the importance of the cup by which we can participate in the AFC Champions League.
We know very well that all the games against Dubai Clubs are derby matches, so I expect a tough match and close competition between the two teams ".
The coach also added that Al Shabab is a good team having high level of foreign and local players. On return of Al Nasr Player Wanderly, Dan Petrescu said, we should not forget the great efforts made by Salim Saleh in past games, of course, the return of Wanderly give us confidence but the problem is that the player needs more matches to settle down and after this game we will enter in a long break.
And for absences in the next game the Romanian coach confirmed that, the defender player Mubarak Saeed because of the accumulation of cards, and Rashid Mohammad Omar, because of the injury suffered in the training session will be absent.
