Alderweireld: Eternal respect for Denmark but we are trying to win |  Red Devils

Alderweireld is heating up in Qatar: “Because of the heat, the body did not move forward” | Red Devils

How will it be with Toby Alderweireld? The experienced Red Devil had to pass through the World Cup qualifiers against Estonia and Wales due to a minor injury. Alderweireld remained in Qatar to work upon his return. A country that feels like its new home: “There are many preconceived notions about Qatar, but my experience here has been very positive.”

Last summer, Toby Aldwirld moved to Al Duhail. The Red Devil has traded his life in London for a stay in sweltering Qatar.

“The temperatures have been nice at last,” laughs Alderweireld in conversation with Spurza. “Before that, temperatures rose from 45 to 50 degrees Celsius, which was new to me. Now it’s 30 degrees here, which is a little better.”

“You just have to get used to it. At first it’s like your body isn’t moving forward. Moisture is tough too, but you can’t do anything about it. Drink a lot and keep training is the only thing that solves.”

Alderworld radiates when he moves to Al Duhail.

Air conditioning makes the difference in football Crazy in Qatar

So in Qatar is sweating. Is air conditioning in World Cup stadiums a welcome gift rather than an extra luxury? “It’s a very big difference. In stadiums with air-conditioning, you feel like you’re playing in Europe and you have no idea how hot it is outside. In stadiums without it, sweating is a plus.”

The Red Devils should not worry about conditions during World Cup matches. They train without artificial air cooling. Problem?

“We also played the World Cup in Brazil with high humidity. This is also a factor that makes it difficult. I don’t know how we are going to deal with the training sessions in Qatar. But I am convinced we have the experience to do it. That way. To do the best we can,” the defender said.

I also started to itch about playing the World Cup in my new home.

“I noticed the World Cup is dominating everything here. Qatar is building a lot of new infrastructure now. I think most of the cranes in the world are here. Everything will be fine here. It’s starting to itch for me too. To play the World Cup in my home the new “.

Alderweireld is ready. People in Qatar too? “Everyone here is obsessed with football,” says the Red Devil convinced. The Qataris also want to show this to the world. They even follow the Premier League closely here.

“A lot of people have preconceived opinions about the country. It’s a developing country, it has quite a few cultural regulations. This isn’t too bad. For example, it’s about wearing long pants in the hospital. Who am I not to do that if that prescription?”

“Of course, I am not ignorant of what was written about Qatar before,” the defender adds. “But my experience here has been very positive.”
