QNB Stars League Week 13 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Khor


Al Khor coach Nassif Al Bayawi spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 13 match against Al Ahli.

“All, our players are ready, except Iranian defender Soroush Hossein  because of his red card. We had suffered due to the absence of Khaled Radwan and Musab Abdelmajid. And goalkeeper Amine Lecomte returned to Al Duhail after his loan period. The other players worked harder so that their absence was not felt.

“I’m concerned about the less chances we create even though we did quite well in the recent matches, except the last one which we lost 0-3 to Al Rayyan. The team management is making efforts to strengthen the side with a goalkeeper and defender,” said Al Bayawi.

Al Khor striker Youssef Ahmed said, “The game against Al Ahli assumes great significance for us. We wanted at least a draw against Al Rayyan, but we lost by a big margin. We want to compensate for that against Al Al Ahli. The coach is finalising our game plan.

“Our performance has improved ever since coach (Al Bayawi) has taken charge. The onus is on us to implement his strategies on the field. Al Khor are a great side and I want to be a valuable addition to them,” said Youssef.
