Doha, Qatar: Qatar football heavyweights Al Sadd yesterday announced to hold their offshore training camp in Austria next month ahead of the new season that will get underway in August.

According to the programme posted by the QNB Stars League (QSL) giants on their twitter handle, Al Sadd will begin their preparations with training sessions at home on June 20.

The Juan Manuel Lillo-coached side will then depart to Austria on July 1 for a training camp that will also include four friendly matches against the opponents yet to be announced.

The Wolves will return to Doha on July 19 and will continue their preparations at home before the new QSL season begins on August 17.

Al Sadd - the 18-time Amir Cup champions and 16-time QSL winners – endured a trophy-less 2022-23 season with rivals Al Duhail, coached by Hernan Crespo, sealing the treble after winning the Ooredoo Cup, Qatar Cup and QSL titles. Younes Ali-led Al Arabi emerged as the Amir Cup champions.

As Al Sadd target a triumphant return, the forthcoming season will witness several new signings in their colours including Brazilian Paulo Otavio, Iranian defender Amin Hazbavi and Colombian player Mateus Uribe, who were recently included in the side.

Meanwhile, Al Markhiya SC continued to inject new international players as they aim for a strong show in the next season. After being promoted to the QSL, Al Markhiya finished at an impressive seventh place in the QSL with the team management eyeing further rise of the club in the top flight.

After signing Gambian national Yusupha Njie last week, Al Markhiya roped in French defender Naby Sarr from the English club Reading FC for two seasons this week. Sarr also played for Huddersfield Town in the English Premier League and the French club, Red Star.

In the next season, Al Markhiya will also be under new coach Anthony Hudson after the 42-year-old signed a two-year deal with the QSL side last week.
