Al Khor coach Frederick Hantz spoke to the media ahead of their 2020-21 season QNB Stars League Week 7 match against Al Gharafa.

“We know very well that Al Gharafa are a strong side. They had beaten Al Duhail 3-0 in the last round, so the match will not be easy at all. We played a big match against Al Sailiya in the last round, but we were unable to win and came out with one point despite the many opportunities we created.

“Al Gharafa will be a big challenge for us. Hopefully, we will come out with a positive result.

“Without a doubt, our position in the league table makes me feel frustrated, but we are still at the beginning of the league and we have to focus strongly on the offensive and defensive aspects in order to develop further. Then, our results will improve and we can progress in the table. “We will put in much effort and we must win in order to get back to the right track,” said Hantz.

Al Khor player Ioannis Fetfatzidid said, “We are looking forward to reach our best levels in the upcoming matches, starting with Al Gharafa. We need one victory to get into the right track.

“Our match against Al Gharafa is difficult, but I have confidence that we can get a positive result. I will do what I can and give off everything I have so that we are in the best condition. I am confident that we will tide over the crisis and improve our ranking.”
