QNB Stars League Week 14 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Arabi


Al Arabi coach Luka Bonacic spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 14 match against Qatar SC.

“We played the two games in the second phase differently and I believe we did a good job in both matches. We held Al Sailiya to a draw and then put up a gritty performance against leaders and only unbeaten team Al Duhail, going down by a solitary goal. My team is getting set.

“It will be tough for us against Qatar SC as they have some new players. We gave importance to tactical training in the last few days. Our problem is that the damage was done in the early stage of the competition. 

“We could collect very less number of points from the first seven matches before I took charge. We are showing improvement. I am taking the overall responsibility. Our weak point is attack. I hope our new recruit Kwame Karikari comes good in the coming games.

“(Diego) Jardel is not his usual self, but I am sure he can still score goals. We don’t have many top-quality players. My main job is to transform the group into a fighting unit,” said Bonacic.
