Al Harbi joins Al Arabi ranks


QNB Stars League team Al Arabi roped in Hamad Al Harbi for one-and-a-half years in a bid to strengthen their defence.

The 22-year-old left-back is expected to play in their Week 13 home match against leaders Al Duhail on Friday.

Croatian coach Luka Bonacic had intensified their preparations in view of the tough task on hand. They had lost 0-2 to Al Duhail in the first phase.

Al Arabi, eighth in the QNB Stars League standings with 10 points, badly need some positive results to move clear of the relegation zone.
