Al Sadd’s new coach Xavi Hernandez has finalised his preparations for the new season by opting for three friendly matches during his team’s pre-season training camp.
The first friendly match will be played on July 22, the second on July 24 and the third on July 28, a day before the team’s return to Doha from Spain. The squad is currently continuing its training, which started on Sunday in Doha without international players. However, the squad’s international players will assemble in Doha before leaving for Barcelona on July 14.
Al Sadd will have a strong opening this season, starting with two matches against Al Duhail in their AFC Champions League matches on August 6 and 13 and the Sheikh Jassim Cup clash on August 17.
New coach Xavi officially assumed the coaching job of replacing Portugal’s Jasualdo Ferreira at the end of last season when Al Sadd won the QNB Stars League shield.
