Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Sailiya


Al Sailiya coach Sami Trabelsi spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Round 6 match against Qatar SC.

“Our last match, against Al Rayyan, was so close that we could’ve even recorded a win. But I was furious with many of my players, may be for the first time in my experience with them. Missing chances is normal in football, but when it happens against big teams in important games, that counts a lot.

“We’re ambitious and look to beat Qatar SC. We’re eager to be in the top four. We’ve the players to achieve that target and the team spirit in the camp is also high. We’ll continue to play a charging game against Qatar SC.

“We’re still working on our ability to convert chances into goals. Qatar SC are a good side. They’ve a good coach in Gabriel Calderon, who has won many accolades. I’ve observed that an area for improvement as far as we’re concerned is the concentration level. It must be high throughout the match. Only then can you expect to leave the pitch with good results,” the Tunisian concluded.
