Doha, November 20 (QNA) – Al Arabi SC Vice President Mohammed Jassim Al Kuwari highlighted his team’s strong ability to compete for the title of the 26th Asian Club League Handball Championship, currently being held in Kuwait.
In statements to Qatar News Agency (QNA) from Kuwait, Al Kuwari said that the team arrived to Kuwait to compete for honors, and that they are aiming for the title after winning their first two matches.
He stressed that club’s management has supported the team with the best players, including four professionals, an approach consistently followed by the club’s management in supporting all sports activities, with special interest from the Club’s President HE Sheikh Tamim Bin Fahad Al-Thani.
Al Kuwari expressed his delight with Al Arabi’s win over Iraq’s Al Jaish SC in their first match in the Championship, followed by a second win over India’s Sports Authority, as well as winning over Lebanon’s Shabab Haret Saida. He congratulated the club’s fans, management, the administrative and technical staff, and all the players for achieving the full mark so far.
Al Kuwari expressed hope that the victories would continue in the upcoming matches, as the team has reached its maximum readiness for this Championship, particularly aiming for a good performance. He expressed his hope that these victories will act as an incentive for the team in its upcoming matches as they push towards winning the title.
Meanwhile, Al Arabi SC Vice President talked about the misfortune that befell the football team this season, saying that the team’s performances were not good for some convincing reasons, including injuries to several influential players, a shortage of professional players, as the team’s form was only completed in the last two league matches, in addition to the lack of technical readiness.
He explained that all these factors were clear reasons behind the team’s poor results and losses in three matches, while the luck wasn’t in favor of the team also in scoring goals and appearing ideally, he added.
The Qatari Al Arabi SC is seeking a new title in the 26th Asian Club League Handball Championship in Kuwait, after winning the championship in South Korea in 2019 for the first time by defeating the Saudi Al Wehda FC 21-19 in the final.
