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


Al Rayyan coach Michael Laudrup spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 17 match against Al Sailiya.

“We just played our first match in the AFC Champions League and now it is back to QNB Stars League action. Too many games in short time and we will make some changes. I cannot say how many. I will have to take a call on it later.

“Al Sailiya are the fourth-placed team. Though they lost their last game, do not forget that they played with 10 men. They will do everything they can to win this game, so we have to be on alert.

“As far as winning the league is concerned, we are not in a position to decide our fate. It will also depend on the results of Al Duhail and Al Sadd. We are seven and five points behind them. What we can do is do our best in all games.

“After this match, we will be playing in the AFC Champions League in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday. It is good that we have players to come off the bench and do well on the field. When you have good players, you have to use them. We have more options now with the new additions,” said Laudrup.
