Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Markhiya


Al  Markhiya coach Yousef Adam spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Round 7 match against Al Gharafa.

“Al Gharafa are a good side. They didn’t deserve to be on six points after six matches. It’ll be a hard outing for us. They had given Al Duhail a hard time in the last round and we must play a disciplined and focused game throughout. I hope my players will give a tough fight.

“Our player pool is now complete and we only have to make them gel well as a team. Of course, they lack the experience of playing in the top flight. They should improve their competence after every match. We’re keen that only the best will take the field. I hope my wards will perform at their best against Al Gharafa.

“The club’s new management is very proactive and is looking after the team’s needs well. We’re aiming at a good result against Al Gharafa. Even a draw will satisfy us. We’re on the right track and our good work should be followed by results.

“The fortnight-long break after this week’s action should help us prepare the team more efficiently,” he added.
