Doha, - Al Arabi SC announced today that they will appoint Nasser Hilal Al Khulaifi as Director of Football on a temporary basis until the end of the season.
The announcement was made by the club's board and its chairman HE Sheikh Khalifa bin Hamad bin Jaber Al-Thani. Al Khulaifi, who was the deputy Director of Football, will replace Salah Al Molla. The latter had resigned after the team lost 1-4 to Al Shahania in the 24th round of Qatar Stars League. The board announced on the club's website that they accepted Al Molla's resignation.
Al Arabi SC Spokesman Mohammed Judai' Al Mansouri said that the board opted to make a decision on the resignation after the match against Al Rayyan in order not to disrupt the team's focus. The game ended in a draw between the two sides. The board's decision to delay accepting the resignation was relevant as Al Arabi was dragged into a relegation battle. Al Mansouri also expressed the boards thanks to Al Molla for his efforts and wished Al Khulaifi, former Al Arabi star, success in his new capacity. (QNA)
