Saad returns as Al-Sadd prepare for Umm Salal

Al-Sadd goalkeeper Saad Al-Dosari returned to training with the first team, after recovering from an injury he had suffered during the Qatar national team’s friendly against Ghana in October.

Saad had suffered a head injury during that game, which ruled out him of the last few games for Al-Sadd. He then underwent a treatment and rehabilitation programme under the supervision of the national team’s medical staff.

The players and coaching staff were keen to welcome the goalkeeper back to the squad before the start of the main training session on Wednesday, in preparation for the upcoming game against Umm Salal in Round 7 of the QNB Stars League.

Al-Sadd go into the next match occupying top spot in the league table with 16 points from 6 games, after five wins and a draw, while Umm Salal are in last place with 4 points.
