Qatar SC add Jimenez to their ranks


Qatar SC added to their ranks attacking midfielder Luis Jimenez till the end of this season on loan from fellow QNB Stars League club Al Gharafa.

The Chilean signed the deal a day before the winter transfer window closes and will replace Iranian Sajad Mujtaba, who was hired recently but could not continue due to an injury.

Jimenez had represented Al Arabi last season before joining Al Gharafa at the start of this season. He had captained The Cheetahs in the first phase of the league campaign, in the process guiding them to the QSL Cup triumph.

The former Chile international thus joins the list of Brazilian Patrick Fabiano and Syrian Osama Omari as Qatar SC’s overseas recruits in the January transfers, while only Brazilian midfielder Bruno Gallo stayed with The Kings.
