QNB Stars League Week 16 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Kharaitiyat

Al Kharaitiyat coach Yasser Sebaie spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 16 match against Al Markhiya.

“This match is like a final for us. Both teams are badly seeking points to stay away from the relegation zone. The drawn encounter against Al Sailiya last week has given us a big boost. It helped a lot in boosting our players’ confidence and that is reflecting on their training sessions.

“We had missed five players, yet we could put up a strong display. I am glad to see my players hugely motivated after a series of negative results. 

“We hope to get full points from the match against Al Markhiya. However, we will sorely miss ace striker Rachid Tiberkanine and goalkeeper Ahmed Sufiyan for this game, but we will try to make a strong statement.

“In football, what is more important is the performance of 11 players on the field. I intend to make appropriate substitutions in order to make up for their absence.

“All coaches are under pressure and I am no different. I try to overcome that with all my experience. I hope to take the team to safety by the end of this season’s QNB Stars League,” said Yasser.
