QNB Stars League Week 18 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Ahli


Al Ahli coach George Jorge spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 18 match against Al Sadd.

“One more crucial game for us. Al Sadd are strong opponents. We have been working more hard after our loss to Qatar SC in the previous round. That was a bitter experience for us especially after creating many opportunities.

“Al Sadd are in good form. We will try to put them in trouble. We have to play well in all departments of the game if we are to contain our opponents who are in good form. They have been simply outstanding whether it is QNB Stars League or the AFC Champions League and we have to rise to the occasion.

“Our position is in the middle of the table. We have chances to move up and also to go down if we do not perform to our potential. We will have Yassine Chikhaoui and injured Mohammed Muntari play in this game, so we hope to win. Lack of consistency in performance is a big problem for us.

“At the same time, we will miss midfielder Ali Qaderi due to suspension,” said Jorge.
