    Al-Ittihad coach rules out team star for this very reason

    Nuno Santo has decided to exclude Nureddin Al-Bahar from the list of the team participating in the Arab Championship, which will be held this month, due to the lack of physical fitness of the player.

    Al-Bahar has returned to training for the Tigers of late as he recovers from an ACL injury he suffered last season.
