Week 12 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Khor


Al Khor coach Nassif Al Bayawi spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 12 match against Al Rayyan.

“Al Rayyan are one of the strongest teams in the QNB Stars League and they are placed third. They had lost to Al Gharafa in the QSL Cup final during the break following their Week 11 defeat at the hands of Al Ahli. So we expect a strong reaction from them and that will make things difficult for us.

“I consider each of the 11 games in the second phase as very crucial. Our goal will be to score points in all matches. At the same time, we should avoid receiving surprise results.

“The management has always been supportive of the team even when the chips were down. That has motivated the players. I’m sure we have some of the best players in Qatar and I hope we will get some good results in the second phase.

“Our dressing room ambience is great and team spirit high, so the players can focus on the game and bring out their best,” said Al Bayawi.
