Pre Match Press Conference - Al Kharaitiyat


Al Kharaitiyat are desperate for a turnaround in their fortunes when they clash with Al Sailiya in Round 4 of the QNB Stars League at the Al Ahli Stadium on Saturday.

Addressing a pre-match Press Conference on Thursday, Al Kharaitiyat coach Ahmad Al Ajlani echoed the general feeling in the team camp and said the players were training hard with an aim of reversing the trend of negative results.

“It’s still the beginning of this season. We had started the new campaign with almost the same team we had at the end of last season. After the first two defeats, we could put up a strong performance against Al Khor and we were closer to victory before settling for a draw.

“Our Qatari players and professional recruits have the potential to throw up far better displays and we’re confident they would lift their performances by several notches. We hope to collect more points from the coming rounds. In football, we’ve to wait for some time to get good results. This is not the time to press the panic button,” said the Tunisian.

Al Ajlani ended the Press Conference by giving credit to Al Sailiya.

“We respect our opponents. Our main aim would be to restrict their forwards,” he said.
