After securing the services of Frenchman Karim Benzema, the management of the Ittihad Jeddah club should put its Moroccan striker Abderrazak Hamdallah on loan for another club.
The club’s management would have taken this decision given that the two players play in the same position. Hamdallah, top scorer in the Saudi league last season with 21 goals and player who allowed the club to be crowned champion, had to give up his number 9 to Benzema so that he could join the club.
Hamdallah should thus find a new club during this summer transfer window. The Moroccan striker, star of the club should not appreciate sitting on the bench after the arrival of Benzema.
Yet benching him let alone putting him on loan was not in the plans of Portuguese Al Ittihad coach Nuno Santo, who has expressed his desire to keep the Moroccan international given that he has been one of the main winners of the Saudi League title in the past season.
Moreover, the Portuguese technician has included the top scorer in the league in the list of his team, which left for the preparatory camp in Taif, in preparation for the new football season.
The list saw the presence of Moroccan international Abdel Razzaq Hamdallah, despite news that indicated his imminent departure from the team following Benzema’s arrival.
