QNB Stars League Week 16 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Gharafa


Al Gharafa coach Bulent Uygun spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 16 match against Al Duhail.

“We are in the process of developing a strong squad for the future and that is a great responsibility. We have a squad of many youngsters and we hope to play a good match against Al Duhail. We have decided to rest some senior players for this game in view of our forthcoming AFC Champions League fixture.

“I am very confident in the young players and their abilities. Al Duhail have some good players like Al Rayyan and Al Sadd. They are perhaps the strongest side in the QNB Stars League, but we will try to win.

“We neither fear any team nor think about their players or standings. Rather, we focus on our players and what they can do to win matches. The performance in the last few games in the league does not actually reflect our true level. We have quality players who can make a big difference and we deserve a better position in the standings.

“We love to play against big teams and we are eager to take on Al Duhail,” said Bulent.
