QNB Stars League Week 20 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Arabi


Al Arabi coach Luka Bonacic spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 20 match against Al Rayyan.

“We know what we have to do against Al Rayyan. Every game is like a final for us. Al Rayyan are a big team with good players. There is a big difference in the level of both teams in terms of the quality of professional players.

“Al Rayyan are capable of beating any team, not just us. So we must pull up our socks. These last three matches are so crucial. Our aim is one point against Al Rayyan and win the last two matches. We have no other way to finish in a better position in the standings. I hope we put up good football in this game.

“We are delighted with the six points that we collected from the last two matches. Those results helped us ward off the relegation threat to a great extent. 

“I am still concerned that some players are not coming good when it matters. I speak to my wards every day. We will miss Talal Al Balooshi due to suspension. Striker Kwame Karikari has an injury, but he might play,” said Bonacic.
