Points from Al Sailiya game will help us a lot: Al Gharafa coach Gourcuff


Al Gharafa coach Christian Gourcuff spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 13 match against Al Sailiya.

“We’re having a very important game against Al Sailiya, who’re direct competitors for us to finish in the top four. The points from this game will help us a lot.

After Al Sailiya, we’ll face Al Sadd, Al Ahli and Umm Salal before the break.

“Al Sailiya are a well-knit unit under an efficient coach, so we’ve to be better than them in all departments of the game. They have some outstanding players such as Nadir Belhadj. The key to victory will be a brilliant overall display.

“We didn’t benefit much from two-week international break as a number of our players were on national-team duty. Besides, they don’t get time to recover,” said Gourcuff.
