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


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

“We are trying hard to forget what happened last week (they were hammered 6-0 by Al Sadd) and working hard to improve by rectifying some mistakes. There are many areas for improvement. I know it is not going to be a smooth sailing against Al Markhiya. We will show our true form as we have made many positive changes to our game.

“We played at our true level in the first eight games and we reaped rewards for that. The decline started from the match against Al Khor when we had a red card. Since then, the players’ morale was low. We could not make a difference in the next five games and went winless.

“It was not our usual self in those games. We have 13 or 14 players in the group who are playing so well and we cannot change them. But then, all teams undergo slump at some point of time. It is important that we are still among the top-four teams. I hope we regain the form soon,” said Trabelsi.
