QNB Stars League Week 19 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Gharafa


Al Gharafa coach Bulent Uygun spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 19 match against Al Rayyan.

“We are passing through a tough phase with the AFC Champions League also. The same is the case with Al Duhail, Al Sadd and Al Rayyan. Yet, we are trying hard to achieve our goals.

“No doubt, it will be tough against Al Rayyan. They are going strong and they keep scoring a lot of goals. They have players of high calibre. However, our ambition is to win all matches. I will be forced to make some changes in view of the AFC engagements in between.

“We are seeking a fourth-place finish in the QNB Stars League as that will give us a chance to play in the Qatar Cup as well as next year’s AFC Champions League. 

“We are preparing our players to be ready for any situation and also for them to stay in good shape as we approach the end of the season. I hope we collect full points against Al Rayyan.

“As far the league title is concerned, I feel Al Duhail will sustain the momentum and win this time,” said Bulent.
