Viva’s Decision Hinders the Progress of Saudi Al-Ahli Football Team

    Al Ahly Jeddah have faced a major crisis in recent hours, having been denied two contract periods due to a high number of cases against the club.

    And according to the Saudi Sport Channel, the International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA) decided to impose severe penalties on Al-Ahly, depriving it of registration of new transactions for two registration periods.

    The big shock is that the decision is final and not subject to appeal, as legal expert Ahmed Al-Sheikhi explained that FIFA did not accept Al-Ahli’s argument in the recent case of player Luis Grabban, in which a player terminated a contract for not receiving his salary for several months, while Al Raqi’s argument was that he did not have a bank account. In Saudi Arabia, the club was unable to transfer funds to an external account.

    In addition to forfeiting contracts, FIFA’s Dispute Settlement Chamber ordered Al-Ahli to pay Crows 4.5 million rials, in addition to late fees.

    And the Saudi media, Abd al-Rahman al-Hamidi, confirmed this, as he said: “FIFA has made the decision to punish the people of Jeddah and the ban will happen even if the money for all the cases that the club has to pay.”

    The club was relegated to the second division last season and is preparing to return to the Saudi Roshen league under coach Pitso Mushimani.

    It is noteworthy that Al-Ahly is second in the Saudi Arabian Yellow League with 52 points, behind the leading club Al-Hazm with 53 points.
