Yemeni defender Fouad joins Al Ahli


QNB Stars League team Al Ahli entered into an agreement with Yemeni defender Mohamed Fouad till the end of season, in line with the Qatar Football Association’s decision to allow Yemenis to be registered as resident players in its first and second-division clubs.

Accordingly, one Yemeni player can be registered by a team in Qatar in a rule that is applicable till the end of this season.

The signing, the first by Al Ahli in the January transfer window, is aimed at strengthening The Brigadiers’ rear.

Al Ahli will take on Umm Salal away in Week 14 of the QNB Stars League on Saturday.
