QNB Stars League Week 17 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Arabi


Al Arabi coach Luka Bonacic spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 17 match against Al Sadd.

“We are in a tight spot and we are trying to escape from it. For that, my players must stay fully focused at least in the remaining games. We are working a lot in training sessions.

“Our system of playing is good. We are working out various formations. We had many stats in favour of us during our loss to Al Ahli in the last game. For example, we shot many times more than Al Ahli. But then, what is the use of all that when you do not win?

“In the last game, I was angry with our players, especially foreign recruits, who must know not to go all out with eight or nine players in the last minutes. Thus, 2-0 became 4-0 against us when the game ended and we must keep quiet now.

“Had Kwame Karikari been lucky to score early in the match, the result might have been different. Our players quite often shoot wide of the mark and we are left with less number of points in the table,” said Bonacic.
