Al Dhafra striker, Senegalese Makiti Diop, is only three goals away from reaching his 100th goal in the Arabian Gulf League, which will enable him to overtake the former Sharjah player, Anderson, with 99 goals, and in light of that historic goal number 12 in the list he is still a player Al Wasl Al-Sabeq, Fahd Khamis, leads it with 165 goals.

The Senegalese scored two goals against Al Ain the day before yesterday during the victory of Al Dhafra 2-1, to reach point 20, which greatly enhanced his chances to move away from the danger of relegation, and the two goals came over the course of the two halves, to raise his score to 97 goals, which he scored with the Al Dhafra and Shabab Al Ahly jerseys. , In 139 encounters over 7 seasons.

Diop scored the best result in the 2013/2014 season, which is the golden period for the player, scoring 22 goals in 25 matches, but it did not spare him the time to win the top scorer title, as he finished the competition in third place behind Al Ain striker, Ghanaian Asamoah Gyan. , Who finished first with 29 goals.

With eight rounds remaining until the end of the league, all indications are in the interest of the Senegalese striker to enter the centenary, especially since the player did not find it difficult to quickly adapt to the team that returned to its ranks during the winter transfers, as he previously worked under the leadership of the Syrian coach, Muhammad Qawid.

For his part, Al-Dhafra coach, the Syrian Muhammad Qawid, attributed the reason behind the victory over Al Ain to the completion of his ranks with the return of all the players, after the past matches witnessed the absence of a number of them, such as Senegalese Makiti Diop and Moroccan defender Issam Al-Adoua.

He said at the press conference: "Our victory should be an appetite for more points, to secure our position in the warm region, and try to reach an advanced arrangement."

On the other hand, Al Ain coach, Portuguese Pedro, showed his anger, and said in the press conference: “I will not discuss penalty kicks, because this is not my job. What caused the players nervousness most, the play stopped a lot, as the referee counted a minute as wasted time in the first half, Despite stopping play four times ».
