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


Al Sailiya assistant coach Amin Fariha spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 18 match against Umm Salal.

“It’s a difficult game. We don’t have many games left in this season’s league competition. So we have to win this match. For that, we have to be on top of our game against Umm Salal.

“It is down to the last few matches and the situation demands much from all teams. We have no injury worries and midfielder Majdi Siddiq will return from his suspension. It is very crucial that we win this match as that will put us in a situation when we are four points ahead of our closest challengers Umm Salal. Right now, the difference is only one point.

“I would like to stress the fact that the game is not a battle between two coaches. It is between two teams that are more or less at the same level and in a similar situation.

“Every coach wants to win. Umm Salal are coming from a defeat, but they are able to make a strong comeback anytime. We know their strengths and weaknesses and we will try to win,” said Amin.
