The Al Saad of Xavi Hernández was proclaimed champion of the Qatar Cup after scoring 0-4 to Al-Duhail to get his seventh title in a competition that dominates over Al-Rayyan, which adds four trophies throughout a tournament that began to be disputed in 1995.
It is the second conquest of Xavi Hernández at the head of the Al-Sadd bench, a club in which he already has two titles after the Super Cup he won in 2019 after overcoming the same rival, Al-Duhail, who won 1-0 in Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium in Doha.
This new trophy for Xavi Hernández arrives a few days after the offer he refused to direct to Barcelona, who finally chose Quique Setién to replace the dismissed Ernesto Valverde after his elimination in the semifinals of the Spanish Super Cup that was held in Saudi Arabia.
Al-Saad won a blunt victory grounded in a large first half. Over the first 45 minutes he earned a three-goal income thanks to the successes of South Korean Nam Tae-hee , Algerian Baghdad Bounedjah , author of a double. Then, in the absence of half an hour to the end of the match, Akram Afif rounded the score with the fourth goal of his team.
Xavi Hernández is not the only Spaniard who celebrated this new title for Al-Sadd. On the grass was the former Atlético captain, Gabi . The technical staff also includes the assistants Sergio Alegre and Óscar Hernández , the physical trainer Iván Torres , the physiotherapist Carlos Nogueira , the doctor Antonio Tramullas , the technical analyst Antonio Lobo and the goalkeeper coach Xavi Ferrando . In addition, Sergio García and David Prats are in charge of the U23 team.
