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


Al Markhiya coach Yousef Adam spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 14 match against Al Sailiya.

“We made many mistakes in our last game against Qatar SC which we lost despite controlling the ball more than the opponents. We also missed many scoring opportunities. When we failed to score, they took advantage of an early goal.

“We deserved at least a point from that game. We are trying to resolve all those shortcomings as we are ready to take on Al Sailiya. Our players know our situation. They are showing responsibility and commitment, but I want more efficiency from them on the pitch.

“We need more positive results in order to move up from the bottom. In fact, we need a point from each game from now onwards, so we seek at least a point against Al Sailiya.

“I hope to field our new recruits Leonardo Henrique Santos de Souza and Brazilian attacking midfielder Eric de Oliveira (replacement for striker Kwame Karikari who moved to Al Arabi) in this match. However, the injury to captain Bilal (Mohammed) will be a setback for us,” said Yousef.
