QNB Stars League Week 14 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Ahli


Al Ahli coach George Jorge spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 14 match against Umm Salal.

“We are working hard so that we can take on Umm Salal in a good shape, both physically and mentally. It is true that we have not won a game after the QNB Stars League’s second phase started, but we are improving week after week.

“The last-gasp goal that earned us a draw against Al Khor in the last round has boosted our players’ confidence. After taking over from (Joaquin) Caparros, I had changed a few changes in the team composition. Hopefully, we will get back to winning ways this week.

“I have noticed that we have to change some patterns with which we play. When you lose the ball, we have to get it back in no time. The problem is not only in defence. the more important thing is to focus on the game on hand. If we keep winning, we can go up in the standings considerable.

“We need one more professional player, but I am not sure whether we will be able to do the signing before the window closes,” said Jorge.
