QNB Stars League Week 15 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Gharafa


Al Gharafa coach Bulent Uygun spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 15 match against Al Khor.

“We just had an important game, the AFC Champions League play-off against Uzbekistan’s Pakhtakor which we won, and we gave the players a day’s rest. We will start preparations for the Al Khor game on Thursday. I hope my players will all be fit and ready for the league game.

“The AFC Champions League match is behind us and we have to fully focus on the game vs Al Khor. We have done our best to correct some mistakes from our big defeat at the hands of Al Sadd last week.

“Conceding four goals was not a big deal considering Al Sadd are strong title contenders and that they can beat any side on their day. Having achieved our target of qualifying for the AFC Champions League, our focus is now mainly on the QNB Stars League.

“We had two wins in the second phase, the same number of victories we had in the entire first phase. We have not decided on Mehdi Taremi for the Al Khor game as he is nursing an injury,” said Bulent.
