Khaled Obaid: Sharjah and Al Jazeera are a bet

The former director of the football team at Al-Nasr Club, Khaled Obeid, confirmed that the competition for the league title will diminish in the coming rounds, to become between two or three teams at most.

He said to Emirates Today: “I personally believe that Al-Nasr will not be a competitor, despite being in fourth place in the competition table. However, the technical problems that the team are currently experiencing are due to the decline in the level of Diaa Sabaa and Mendes, and the changes made by the new Argentine coach Ramon Diaz to the squad. The one who fought the Ittihad Kalba match, confirms that the coach needs some time to make his mark, and we are in a difficult time in the competition that does not allow wasting time.

He added, "Sharjah and Al Jazeera are currently betting mare, and the closest to the competition, and Bani Yas and Al-Ahly youth may enter with them, and from my point of view, the clubs that will be able to outperform the Al Wasat clubs at the bottom of the table are the ones that will win the title."

He continued: “Al-Faisal in determining the identity of the league champion will not be direct confrontations between the teams competing for the title, but between all the teams, for example, the Kalba Federation offers one of its best levels, and Khor Fakkan is a difficult team, especially at its stadium, as well as Ajman has evolved with the transfer period. "Winter season, and I think that these teams will determine the identity of the league champion."
