Persepolis Lost Concentration against Sharjah: Yahya Golmohammadi
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Persepolis football team coach Yahya Golmohammadi says they lost their concentration against Sharjah.
Persepolis was held to a 2-2 draw against the Emirati Club in Group C on Tuesday. The result put the Iranian team in the third place with just one point.
“We wanted to win the match and had a good start but lost our concentration. We went ahead twice but they returned to the match,” Golmohammadi said.
“We have conceded four goals in two matches and we need to fix our defensive problems. We could have scored in the second half but missed our chances,” he added.
“Without a doubt, we are the favorite to qualify for the next stage. We will host Al Duhail and Sharjah in Tehran and we can beat them with support of our fans. I think we will qualify for the next round if we have a little chance and more concentration,” Golmohammadi concluded.
