After losing the league .. Ittihad Jeddah signs Portuguese coach Santo

Al-Fateh said through his official account on Twitter: "They welcomed the new Fatahawi," without revealing the financial value of the deal.

Felice had previously played for many Spanish clubs, including Jimnastic, Tarragona, Almeria and Union Deportiva Logronis

and Veles is the second opener after the first with the Swedish international goalkeeper Jacob Rene (28 years), from Aalborg, Denmark.
