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


Al Khor coach Nassif Al Bayawi spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 16 match against Umm Salal.

“We have put behind the disappointment of losing to Al Gharafa (1-2) in the last round and we are ready to face Umm Salal. They are a strong team that has just changed the coach (Talal El Karkouri replacing Mahmoud Jaber) and the players will be motivated to prove themselves under the new master.

“However, we won’t change our strategy according to our rivals. We faced Al Rayyan as we did Al Kharaitiyat and we will face Umm Salal with the same strategy. All I care about is the performance of my team.

“We lost a number of points due to bad luck and we hope that we will succeed against Umm Salal. We have plenty of attackers and the game plan will be decided according to the situation. I will not change the way we play.

“New recruit Abdulaziz Metwaly is a promising player. It is unfair to judge him based on his performance in one match,” said Al Bayawi.
