QNB Stars League Week 22 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Kharaitiyat


Al Kharaitiyat coach Yasser Sebaei spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 22 match against Al Sadd.

“We are into the last round and unfortunately we have gone to the play-off to stay in the First Division. We had played a friendly match during the three-week break in order to be in good shape for the game against Al Sadd.

“I must admit that the match against Al Sadd is not our priority. We are thinking mainly about the play-off against Al Wakrah (Second Division runners-up).

“Al Wakrah are a strong side and we know their strengths and weaknesses. We will go all out against them to earn our right to play in the top flight. We will be equally motivated. We have the players to deliver the goods.

“We did not deserve to finish 11th in the league. We had some bad phases in the QNB Stars League and lost many crucial points. We lost some matches which we could have at least drawn.

“The quality that we had, we could not prove it on the pitch. I want my players to take the positives from our win over Qatar SC in the last round. That gave us the lifeline,” said Yasser.
