Al Markhiya coach Abdullah Mubarak spoke to the media ahead of their 2022-2023 season QNB Stars League postponed match from Week 10 against Al Sailiya.
“The preparations are going on well and started since the Al Wakrah match in the last round. The technical staff had told the players that the match against Al Sadd in the Round of 16 of Amir Cup would be part of the preparations for the next matches in the league, starting with the Al Sailiya match.
“Al Markhiya will play the match seriously, just as it is so crucial for Al Sailiya and therefore the focus will be largely on this match.
“Al Sailiya are a good team and have a distinguished coach with great experience, but Al Markhiya will be at the top of our physical, technical, tactical and mental readiness to get match points.
“The advantage in the match is in our favour, as we play it without pressure. We will play comfortably and the most important thing is to be on top of our focus,” said Abdullah Mubarak.
