Al Gharafa coach Slavisa Jokanovic spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 2 match against Al Rayyan.

“There was nothing special in our preparations, they’ve been normal for an important match not only for us, but also for Al Rayyan.

“I’m satisfied with all players’ performance in the first game against Al Shahania. That game is past, we’ve a long journey and we’re now focusing on the upcoming games.

“We look forward to put up a better performance against Al Rayyan, than we did against Al Shahania. We’ve a respectable opponent and we respect the rest of the teams also. Al Rayyan are stronger than Al Shahania, we’re required to produce the same performance and efforts to get victory.

“Al Rayyan have new names, maybe they changed the side more than we did. We want to be in the best of our readiness to face them,” said Jokanovic.
