The Danish coach Michael Laudrup, Al Rayyan’s head coach, lauded his team’s performance in their 4-1 thrashing of El Jaish in the match that was played between the two Qatari powerhouses in matchday 17 of Qatar Stars League.

Laudrup stated in the post-match conference: “I didn’t expect my team to score four times against such opposition, but we were playing to win since the kickoff.”

The Danish coach added: “We got three valuable points and advanced to third position after a heroic performance by many players especially Abdurrahman Al Karbi who was a key element of the win, as well as Tabata who was introduced after being deemed fit to play.”

The Al Rayyan tactician commented: “As for our league chances, we need to beat the top teams especially Al Sadd and Lekhwiya. It will be difficult, but not impossible.”
