Al Arabi's Hamed set for comeback from suspension


Suspended right-back Hamed Ismail will return to action in Al Arabi’s Week 11 home game against Al Khor on 8th December.

Hamed had missed out on their 1-3 loss to Al Gharafa last week as he served suspension with a fourth yellow card he received during their Week 9 game against Al Markhiya.

Al Arabi started preparations for their last match in the first phase on Saturday. Croatian coach Luka Bonacic, who replaced Tunisian Qais Yaakoubi after Week 7, has yet to make an impact in terms of positive results and they are lying at the rock bottom on six points following their latest defeat. And Bonacic expressed his disappointment over the sad state of affairs during the team’s training session.

Talal Al Balooshi, Mardik Mardikian and Hossam Kamal, all injured, lightly went through their paces as they continued their rehabilitation programme.
