Injured Yassine set for comeback


Al Ahli’s injured Tunisian professional Yassine Chikhaoui is set to return to action when they take on Al Markhiya in Round 8 of the QNB Stars League at the Al Arabi Stadium on Saturday, 18th November.

Yassine was taken off the pitch after getting injured in the very sixth minute of their match against Al Arabi in the sixth round, which was drawn 2-2.

He also missed Al Ahli’s Round 7 game that they lost to Al Sadd as well as the third and fourth rounds of QSL Cup, where they defeated Al Arabi and drew with Al Markhiya.

Yassine has a key role to play in Spanish coach Joaquin Capaross’ scheme of things especially since the team is lying eighth in the standings with only five points.

He is also an instrumental player for Tunisia and missed their successful Russia World Cup qualifying campaign.

Al Ahli will begin their preparations for the league, which resumes after a two-week break for international commitments, on Tuesday.
