For the first time … Saudi clubs are preparing for the...

          Al-Hilal did not change its ranks ... victory, youth and resounding deals ... and its anticipation for the return of the Union            

Saudi football fans are waiting for the launch of the new version of the Saudi Professional League, the Prince Mohammed bin Salman Professional Cup League, which will carry the number 45 in the history of Saudi football competitions, as the wheel of the new version begins to turn next Saturday evening.

The Al Hilal team will be the title holder of the last edition of the league on a mysterious mission in front of the newly promoted Al Ain in the professional league, and on Saturday evening, 3 matches will be held next to the Al Hilal match against Al Ain, where the youth will face their counterpart Abha, and Al-Faisali will be a guest of cooperation, and Al-Qadisiyah will meet his counterpart Al-Wahda in Mecca Al Mukarramah.

The first week’s competitions continue on Sunday with 4 confrontations, where victory will be against Al-Fateh at Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium in the capital Riyadh, while Al-Ahly will face a difficult task outside its home stadium in Al-Batin Club stadium, which is returning to the professional league competitions, and Damak will face his pioneering counterpart, in When the union will meet his counterpart the agreement.

In general, competitions will continue according to the return procedures and protocols that were attended in the last part of last season, following the outbreak of the Corona virus, with social distancing and routine checks before the start of the matches, and the mass absence in the stadiums so far.

The effects of the Corona virus on the summer and preparatory period for clubs continued not to establish external camps, as a number of clubs that had time to set up short internal camps were satisfied, while clubs such as Al Hilal, Al Nasr, Al-Ahly and Al-Taawon remained without any preparatory camps, due to their continued participation in the AFC Champions League, which is the championship. That was resumed after the end of the local championship in Saudi Arabia.

Despite all these repercussions, which continued to affect the summer transfer market, which was overwhelmed by the great calm and did not witness a great movement as it was in the past years, for several reasons, including the lack of time and the financial impacts of clubs due to the Corona virus, in addition to the inability of some clubs to get rid of From a number of foreign professional players, which led to the decision to continue until now.

  • «Victory and youth are more mobile»

Faced with this, Al-Nasr and Al-Shabab teams remained at the forefront of the clubs that showed more readiness for the next edition of Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s professional league, although the deals in Al-Nasr were more digitally than its youth counterpart, but the period spent by the capitalist youth club in preparation through an internal camp in The capital, Riyadh, may contribute to his appearance in a better artistic way, especially at the beginning of the league.

Al-Nassr was the most moving during the current summer transfer market, and Al-Nassr started his early deals to prepare for the AFC Champions League, which he bid farewell to since the semi-finals of the tournament after losing to Iranian Persepolis, where the victory at the level of foreign professionals completed his contract with South Korean John Sim Kim and Argentine Betty Martinez In exchange for the departure of the Brazilian Giuliano, while the picture is still unclear so far about the future of the rest of the foreign players, especially the duo Ahmed Moussa and the Brazilian Petros.

In terms of local players, Al-Nasr contracted with Abdel-Fattah Asiri from Al-Ahly, Abdel-Majid Al-Salih from Al-Shabab, and Al-Fateh duo Ali Lagami and Ali Al-Hassan, in addition to Osama Al-Khalaf from Al-Hazm, Abdel Aziz Allawi from Uhud team, and Abdullah Al-Shanqeeti from Al-Ansar.

As for the youth team, it comes on the list of deals concluded by the capitalist team, the presence of the Argentine Ever Banega, coming from the Seville team, in a free transfer deal that will contribute to raising the technical level of the youth team, in addition to the contract with the Portuguese Fabio Martinez from Sporting Braga, as well as the contract with the Chilean international Igor Lishnovsky from Cruz, in addition to the deal of Lithuanian goalkeeper Areola Skies.

The youth succeeded in strengthening their ranks with a number of local deals that would give the team a special addition with the presence of distinguished foreign artistic names, and at the forefront of these names comes Khaled Al-Ghamdi from Al-Faisali team, and Jamal Bajandouh, who went through a professional experience in Croatia after his exit from Al-Ittihad.

  • “Crescent Calm”

The Al Hilal team, which holds the title of the last version of the league, did not show any new moves for the next season, as the blue team remained stable on all the names that participated in its ranks during the past two seasons, and even the Brazilian Carlos Eduardo, who left the UAE youth Al-Ahly , did not bring the blue team a substitute for it, amid Media news of ongoing negotiations with Brazilian Tecesra, the Chinese player for Jiangsu, and Spain’s Pozuelo, the Toronto player.

Al-Hilal settled with contracting goalkeeper Abdullah Al-Jadani from Al-Wehda team, in addition to buying the contract of striker Saleh Al-Shehri, who fought with the Blue Team on a professional loan system for a period of a sports season during which he achieved great successes.

So far, the fate of the Syrian striker Omar Khirbin seems ambiguous. Among the news of his departure and survival, the player continued his presence and presence with the blue team, which paves the way for his continuation in the coming period, while Al Hilal regained his player Ahmed Ashraf (Mawalid), who previously represented the Al-Faisali team on loan season. the past.

  • “High hopes for the union”

After years spent by the Al Ittihad team moving away from touching the Pro League championship, supporters and fans of the Al Ittihad club are looking forward to the return of their team to the competition circuit for advanced positions in light of the great decline that the team looked like in the past two seasons, during which they were one of the threats to fall into the First Division, especially the last season that did not He guarantees his survival except in the last moments of the tournament, the “last round”.

The hopes of the Al Ittihad fans seem to be based on overcoming the administrative mistakes that have been repeated a lot and led to the loss of the technical identity of the team, and the Al Ittihad team did not show any strength during the summer transfer period, where he contracted with the Brazilian Henrique, in addition to the return of the Serbian striker Alexander Bergovic, and the contract with Abdul Majid Al Swat as a local player.

The new season will witness a different presence of Fahd Al-Mawled, the most prominent star in the team, who missed last season due to his suspension by the National Committee for Doping Control, before his return in the last part of the season after the end of his suspension, and Al-Mawlid plays a prominent role in the strength of the Al-Ittihad team and his presence on the moral level.

  • “Al-Ahly … a race against time.”

As for the Al-Ahly club, it seems that it is a race against time in order to avoid the mistakes that occurred in the last part of the season and led to the absence of a large number of the team members at the level of foreign professionals, as this departure led to legal problems between Dejanini, Youssef Blailey and De Souza after they canceled their contracts on the pretext of Having financial dues for them. Al-Ahly succeeded in overcoming the dilemma of the departure of its stars and was able to close the files of reluctance to leave a lot, especially for Omar Al-Somah and Muhammad Al-Owais, at least temporarily in light of the movement carried out by the administration headed by Abdul Ilah Moumina in the recent period.

Al-Ahly contracted with Moroccan Idris Fattouhi from the Al-Hazm team in a deal in which the club looks forward to being his goal, especially in light of the great distinction that the player showed during his presence with the Al-Hazm team last season, and so far news is circulating about the departure of one of the victory duo Noureddine Amrabat or the Nigerian Ahmed Musa for the ranks of Al-Ahly.

  • “Uncharacteristic technical stability”

Away from the players’ deals and transfer news, perhaps for the first time that technical stability is strongly present in the Prince Mohammed bin Salman Professional League competitions, as the training names continued to be present since last season and the change has affected only 3 clubs, namely Al-Wahda, Al-Taawon and Al-Ain, compared to 13 teams in which the same continued Training technical names.

Al-Hilal, the defending champion, continues his presence with Roman Razvan as coach of the team, and the same is the case for Al-Nasr, led by Portuguese Rui Vitoria, for the third consecutive season, while in Al-Ahly, Serbian Vladan continues his presence after taking over Al-Ahly leadership in the middle of last season.

As for the Unity team, it is led in the new season by Portuguese coach Evo Vieira, after the Uruguayan club was sacked by Daniel Carreño and took over the temporary assignment of coach Issa Al-Mahayani last season, and the same situation appeared in the cooperation team that contracted with French Carteron.

Al-Faisali and Al-Raed continued their adherence to their coaches, as the Brazilian Shamouska Annabi Sudir leads, while the Albanian Husky attends at the head of the technical pyramid in the pioneer, while the youth is led by the Portuguese Kaishina, who attended in the last part of last season, while the management of Al-Ittefaq Club renewed confidence in the national coach Khaled Al-Atwi to lead The first football team.
