Riyadh: Issa Al-Hakami

The hearing held by the Professional Committee of the Saudi Football Federation ended on Thursday for the management of Al-Ittihad Club, on the case known in the Saudi sports street as the “recording case” submitted by Al-Nasr Club against Al-Ittihad regarding the latter’s contract with Moroccan striker Abdel Razzaq Hamdallah after Al-Nassr terminated his contract.

The session, which was held in Riyadh, lasted 5 hours, during which Anmar Al-Haili, the president of Al-Ittihad Club, and Abdul Wahab Abed, in addition to Hamed Al-Balawi, the Executive Director of Football, and Mishaal Al-Saeed, the first team administrator, were questioned.

The hearing was preceded by Abdel Razzaq Hamdallah’s hearing last Tuesday via video call, while his lawyer was present at the committee’s headquarters.

Neither side nor the Professional Committee made any statements about the session, amid unconfirmed accounts on social media platforms.

The committee confronted the federalists with audio and video recordings made by Al-Nasr on March 28, accusing Al-Ittihad and Hamdallah of conducting negotiations during the validity of his contract with Al-Nasr.

After Al-Nasr’s complaint, FIFA sought the opinion of the case in light of the existence of a contractual dispute between Al-Nasr and Hamdallah after the latter’s contract was terminated last November, and the request of each side to obtain financial compensation. and its regulations.

Hamdallah had joined Al-Nasr Club in 2019 with an exceptional season in which Al-Nasr won the league and is the top scorer, but his level declined after that, specifically in the last two seasons, as the problems between the two parties were overwhelming until Al-Nasr decided to end the contractual relationship on November 23, and the surprise was an announcement Al-Ittihad club signed the player three weeks later.
