We’ll fight for three points against Al Sailiya: Al Khor coach Schefer


Al Khor coach Winfried Schefer spoke to the media ahead of their 2020-21 season QNB Stars League Week 17 match against Al Sailiya.

“I am happy with my team’s performance and everyone is here together to get out of this stage, as we did a great job in training. The players applied that in the match we played in Week 16 and I hope we will do that in our match against Al Sailiya in Week 17.

“We are going step by step and we can observe the team’s development, and we must take advantage of the opportunities against Al Sailiya as they are a strong and organized team. We must deal with this match in an organized manner.

“We have adopted the appropriate strategy against Al Sailiya and we must focus on every match we play in order to gain the maximum number of points. We must fight from the first player in the attack to the last player in the defence. We are now working on that and I do not want to talk about the relegation play-off game.

“The team is doing a great job in training to avoid that match and, as I mentioned, we have to collect the most points in order to be in a good position at the end of the league,” said Schefer.

Al Khor player Ahmed Reyad said, “Our team is ready for all upcoming matches, especially to face Al Sailiya, and we must get out of the danger zone by collecting the maximum number of points. We will fight it out to avoid relegation this season.

“We will go into the Al Sailiya match with full force to collect points and we have addressed our mistakes in the previous match. We have analysed the tactics of Al Sailiya and are ready for the game.”
