Pre-Match Press Conference —Al Kharaitiyat


Al Kharaitiyat coach Ahmad Al Ajlani spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Round 7 match against Al Arabi.

“We’ve prepared well for this outing, as always. We had drawn with Al Markhiya, so we’re keen to perform better. Al Arabi are a side with rich history. However, we respect only our matches, not our rivals.

“Lack of concentration has been a big bane among our players. We lose ball possession quite often for this reason and have lost points from winning situations. My players’ ability to concentrate until the last moment should be improved. In football, for that matter in any sport, the ability to stay fully focused throughout counts a lot. When we don’t have injury worries, we provide a good level. Results make a big difference in the teams’ standings, especially when you play against a team which plays at almost the same level, you’ve to be wary of them.

“We’ve a good bunch of players who can perform at a high level. The onus is on them to come up with good shows against Al Arabi who are a tricky side,” said Al Ajlani.
