Tehran Times – TEHRAN, Esteghlal football team coach Farhad Majidi says that they will do their best with all their might against Saudi Arabiaâ€™s Al Hilal.
The Iranian team are scheduled to face the Asian giants Al Hilal Monday night at the Zabeel Stadium in Dubai in the 2021 AFC Champions League Round of 16.
â€śFirst of all, I would like to thank Al Wasl football club because they cooperated with us. I have good memories of playing here,â€ť Majidi said.
â€śWe are well aware that we have a difficult match ahead of us because Al Hilal are the best Saudi Arabian football team. We have analyzed the team and I hope our players show a good performance against them,â€ť he added.
â€śWe have had so many difficulties but decided not to think about the problems and just concentrate on the match.
â€śEsteghlal booked a place in Round of 16 in a tough group and we deserved to play the match on our home soil. 10 days ago, Syria football team played in Tehran and I donâ€™t know whatâ€™s the difference between two matches. If we qualify for the next stage, we will have to play in Saudi Arabia and I donâ€™t know the reason,â€ť he stated.
â€śAt the end, I have the message for our fans. We will play Al Hilal with all our might,â€ť Majidi concluded.
