Forward Sebastian Tigali, striker, is preparing for a new challenge after deciding his move from Al-Wahda to Al-Nasr weeks ago. Tigali, who spent five seasons with Al-Wahda during which he became the historical goalscorer for the Arab Gulf League with 152 goals, will have to prove himself again despite his age with his new team, and he will also have to change the image and the failure scenario that was associated with the second experience of a number of foreign stars during their career in the league in Previous periods, when they were brilliant in the first experience, and then the second comes in contrast to what they previously presented, perhaps the most prominent of them is Ghanaian Asamoah Gyan, and other former players and some current as well.
And the fans of Al-Nasr previously expressed reservations about including Tigali, as he reached the age of 35, in addition to previous similar experiences, as well as the current that did not succeed even though it was ongoing and his status may change, including Caio who was transferred from Al-Wasl after a distinguished march to Al-Ain, but he did not do much this The season for "The Leader", as well as Brazilian Wilton Suarez, between success with Sharjah, failure so far with Al Wasl, and the same is true for Brazil's Leonardo, the former Al-Wahda player and Al-Ahly youth, and Spain's Condi, Al-Ahly youth player and former Bani Yas player.
The former Al-Nasr player and technical analyst Salem Rabie explains this phenomenon to the Emirates Today for a number of reasons. He says: “One of the reasons for the failure of the second experiment was that the team contracted the player based on his previous success, and not to meet his needs as he did in the first team.”
He continued: «Failure is often the fate of the second experience, as some clubs contract with the player, then the coach comes and does not see him as suitable for the way he played, so Condi, for example, was an outright attacker with Baniyas, but he was not used properly with the former Al-Ahly youth coach, Arubarina.
Gian and Valdivia
Ghanaian striker Asamoah Gyan is one of the most prominent foreign strikers who passed the league, and he presented two completely different experiences, the first for a long period of four seasons with Al Ain between 2011 and 2015 transformed him into one of the team's legends, where he won many titles, including four league titles, and also He crowns a historic goal scorer for Al-Ain in the Asian Champions, but when he moved to Al-Ahly youth, he did not achieve anything to mention, as his career stumbled due to many injuries, and he played only 13 games in which he scored three goals.
Similar to what happened to Jian, the Chilean Valdivia, who is considered one of the best game makers in the history of the league, and one of the legends of Al Ain, and after an external experience when he left Al Ain to the Brazilian Palmeiras, he returned to carry the shirt of the unit without providing the level he was known for, so his second career ended in failure.
Tehi and Mitrovic
One of the best strikers in the history of the team appeared, along with Al-Jazeera, in the history of the team, Ivory Jewel Gohe, who is considered one of the historical goalscorers in the African Nations Cup with 10 goals. He presented with Al-Jazeera three great seasons that attracted the attention of other teams, the most prominent of which was Al Ain, who contracted with him, but he did not live long with Al Ain after he failed to provide the level expected of him.
The same thing happened with the Serbian Mitrovic, who played for Al-Ahly youth (formerly Al-Ahly) in 2004, and he came second in the top scorers with 19 goals, and after a short period in Romania, he returned to play with Al-Wahda but did not reach the level expected of him in the 2006 season.
In the 2005 season, Al Ain signed the top scorer of the Belgian league at the time, Serbian Nenad Westerovic, and he appeared magnificently with Al Ain, then he moved on in a failed and short experience with victory.
Moses, Valder and Diop
Also among the prominent names was the Burundi Juma Musa (Bulaal), who is one of the most important goalscorers in victory between 1999 and 2001, and scored about 50 goals in three seasons, and after moving to Al Ain for one season, he did not score any goal. The monastery, which played for victory between 2004 and 2006, had carried the shirt of famous clubs in Europe and Brazil, scored for the dean 50 goals in two seasons, then moved to the Dubai Club “previously” and his last stop was in the stadiums, and then he moved to training. He played for Al Dhafra between 2011 and 2016, then moved to Al-Ahly youth, but he did not do much and then moved to China.
