QNB Stars League Week 13 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Kharaitiyat


Al Kharaitiyat coach Ahmad Al Ajlani spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 13 match against Al Rayyan.

“We are facing a tough side in Al Rayyan and that itself is a big motivation for our players. Our situation is different than them, lying in the 10th place with only nine points and staring at relegation, but we have the determination to put up a good display.
“A strong performance will boost my wards’ confidence after our defeat at the hands of Umm Salal last week. I hope we can field a good team against Al Rayyan and we will fight for full points.

“I don’t want to cite excuses for our below-par performances this season, but nothing is impossible in football. You can’t overlook the fact that the players must put in their best in all the games, and not in just one or two matches.

“We were affected by the absence of some key players. It is difficult to replace an important player. We are also trying to rectify defensive mistakes and concede lesser number of goals,” said Al Ajlani.
