Al-Nasr coach’s surprising decision after cup win over Uhud
According to journalist Abdulaziz Al-Osaimi, Portuguese coach Luis Castro, technical director of Al-Nasr, decided to give the team’s players a one-day rest from training before the match with Al-Tai.
This decision was taken to give the players a rest period due to the large number of matches in various tournaments such as the Saudi Roshen League, AFC Champions League and the Custodian Cup of the Two Holy Mosques.
The match between Al-Alami and Al-Tai will take place next Friday as part of the eighth round of the Saudi Roshan League Championship.
It is worth noting that the Saudi team is fifth in the league standings with 15 points after a big 4-3 win over Al Ahly in the previous match.
