QNB Stars League Week 17 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Khor


Al Khor coach Nassif Al Bayawi spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 17 match against Al Markhiya.

“We are disappointed over our loss to Umm Salal, losing three crucial points. We have got many negative results and we could have fared better in many matches.

“We have been working on boosting the morale of the players and we hope positive atmosphere prevails in the team camp again. Both Al Markhiya and we have endured bad results. After the loss to Al Kharaitiyat, Al Markhiya have changed the coach (Yousef Adam being replaced by Adel Sellimi), so we are expecting a strong reaction from them.

“We want to make up for the lost points. At the same time, there are a few teams fighting to avoid relegation,” said Al Bayawi.

Al Khor goalkeeper Khalifa Abubakr said, “We have prepared well for this match. Our goal is to win this game and stay clear of the danger zone. At the same time, we know that Al Markhiya will also be determined to compensate for their loss last week and may go all out.”
