QNB Stars League Week 11 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Khor


Al Khor coach Nassif Al Bayawi spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 11 match against Al Arabi.

“We started our preparations for this match right after the Al Sadd game and we are fully focused on the task on hand. Like us, Al Arabi will also be determined to win.

“We worked on the psychological level of the players, especially after a good game against Al Sadd. We lost that match in the dying moments. I’m happy that the players are showing improvement. Al Arabi have changed after Luka Bonacic took over from Qais Yaakoubi.

“We have already started thinking about the second phase of the competition. The discussions will be intensified after this game. So the Al Arabi encounter has the effect of six points from our point of view. I hope the players will execute our strategy on the field and come off it with full points.

“Al Arabi have some very good players, such as Khalfan Ibrahim and Hamed Ismail, but we do not focus on a particular player,” said Al Bayawi.
