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


Al Sailiya coach Sami Trabelsi spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 22 match against Al Duhail.

“Al Duhail are already champions and they want to stay unbeaten in the tournament. For us, we have our reputation at stake, so we will try to win this game. This is a test game for us ahead of the Emir’s Cup matches.

“We do not have many choices than playing a disciplined game if we have to restrict Al Duhail. They are one of the best sides in Asia as we can see from their terrific run in the AFC Champions league.

“Al Duhail have players like Youssef Msakni and Youssef El Arabi who can change the tide of a game on their own. Then, there is Nam Tae-Hee… Moreover, they are playing with the same motivation and determination even in the last matches.

“We will do our best and we can even surprise them if we play to our full potential. We had the possibility to finish above the sixth position. We have a good group. But football is not just about the coach and players. We can get better players next season,” said Trabelsi.
