Pre Match Press Conference - Al Arabi


Eighth-placed Al Arabi target full points as they run into third-placed Umm Salal in Round 4 of the QNB Stars League at the Al Gharafa Stadium on Saturday.

Al Arabi coach Qais Yaakoubi said nothing less than three points would satisfy them at the final whistle.

“The victory over Qatar SC in the previous round has done a world of good for us, be it players, technical staff and team management. We felt very good and it has really boosted our confidence. We won’t be satisfied without maximum points from this match,” said Yaakoubi.

“We hope to continue from where we left off. Our players took some time to settle into their stride. We’re still in the process of building a strong side. We hope to achieve it soon.

“In football, each game is difficult. If you ever think that a particular match is easy, then you’ll suffer. I’ve been showing video clippings of matches to our players. At the same time, I tell them it would be a different ball game on the field,” the Tunisian said.

Yaakoubi concluded the Press Conference, saying his Dream Team would go all out to achieve positive result
