Umm Salal’s Rhaili out for the season with cruciate ligament injury


Umm Salal defender Adil Rhaili has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a cruciate ligament injury.

The Moroccan damaged his knee during their goalless draw against Al Ahli in Week 14 of the QNB Stars League last Friday. It will take at least six months for him to be back in action following the surgery and rehabilitation programme.

Rhaili is one of the standout defenders in the QNB Stars League. He has been a key member of the Umm Salal squad ever since he joined The Orange Fortress at the beginning of last season.

Umm Salal, eighth in the QNB Stars League table with 17 points, will host Al Arabi in Week 15 at the Al Gharafa Stadium on 8th December.
