Al Sadd quartet returns to training


Al Sadd players Saad Al Dossari, Hassan Al Haydous, Musab Kheder and Pedro Miguel, who did duty for Qatar at the recent Gulf Cup in Kuwait, joined the team’s training on Saturday.

Al Sadd, second in the QNB Stars League standings with 27 points, host promoted and bottom-placed side Al Markhiya in Week 12 on 13th January.

The players trained under Portuguese coach Jesualdo Ferreira without Algerian striker Baghdad Bounedjah, who is still recuperating from an injury.

Meanwhile, five Al Sadd players — Meshaal Barsham, Mishal Al Shammari, Ahmed Suhail, Salem Al Hajri and Hashim Abdullatif — joined the Qatar squad preparing for the Asian Under-23 Championship in China.
