Former Al Dhaid coach, technical analyst Mohammed Saeed Al Tunaiji, confirmed that Al Wahda team remains one of the strongest candidates to compete for the shield of the Arabian Gulf League, despite the loss suffered by Fujairah in the first round of the Arabian Gulf League, in comparison to the potential of its players and technical and administrative staff. The start of the league is an important lesson for teams looking to win the championship.

3 - wrong view

5. Administrative support
Al-Tunaiji said that the Algerian coach Majid Bouguerra benefited from the support provided by the Fujairah administration in all respects, especially from the moral point of view to prove himself as the first non-citizen coach to succeed with the team, which gave him a strong motivation to lead the team correctly in front of the unit and achieve the first win at home season.
6 - The audience pause
Al-Tunaiji said that Al-Fujairah fans are linked to coach Majid Bougherra with good relations dating back to the first season of «Wolves» in the Arabian Gulf League, when he was a player in the team and led Fujairah to stay, and this was evident in the game Al-Wahda, where the audience attended the team training before the game Strongly in the stands during the game, give players a significant moral dose.
7- Buffon, Darwish and Saleh
Al-Tunaiji said that the stability of the Fujairah goalkeeper Ismail Abdullah, nicknamed «Buffon» on his level, and the outstanding performance presented by Ahmed Darwish and Abdullah Saleh, were the most important keys to the victory of Fujairah, and that their continuation of this performance in a balanced manner with the rest of the team will make Fujairah a season reinforced by positive results .
8- Bouguerra's ambition
