Doha: Michael Laudrup of Lekhwiya won the first coach of the month award of Qatar Stars League (QSL) announced yesterday.
Laudrup name came on top of the list after the Football Development department with Prozone reviewed the match statistics for the month of August.
Laudrup’s team -Lekhwiya outperformed the other 13 QSL member clubs in a number of key technical and performance indicators. The League has outlined a number of key targets for QSL clubs to aspire to and hopefully exceed.
With Lekhwiya winning their first two games of the season emphatically and surpassing certain set targets, this evening head coach Michael Laudrup received the much prized accolade at Lekhwiya’s training pitches.
Lekhwiya started off their defense by convincingly beating Qatar Sports Club 5-0 and in then in Round 2 they continued in the same vein, putting three past Al Khor (away). Eight goals and none conceded is a high bench mark to follow and has so far provided a dream start for the Dane’s side with six points in the bag.
Laudrup joined the QSL during the 2014 summer break, replacing Belgian head coach Eric Gerets.
The former Barcelona and Real Madrid legend has stated publicly that domestic dominance and Asian Champions League glory are his main objectives.
