AGL top-scorer Sebastian Tagliabue has signed a two-year contract extension to give Al Wahda a huge boost ahead of Thursday’s tricky trip to Al Wasl.
Tagliabue, 30, put pen to paper on a deal until 2018 as another stellar campaign sees the striker on 12 top-flight goals in nine appearances for the club he joined in July 2013.
– Al Jazira: Braga hopes youth can spark season
Chairman Ahmed Al Rumaithi tweeted: “Tigali has been an extraordinary star for the Clarets.”
Meanwhile, crisis club Al Jazira know they must kick on at Fujairah tomorrow after picking up a first victory in two-and-a-half months last weekend. “Fujairah is an important game,” said boss Abel Braga, whose team beat Al Shaab 5-1 last week. “It is important to keep the momentum going.”
Walter Zenga’s bottom-placed side Al Shaab host the champions and league leaders Al Ain on Friday, who arrive on the back of last Saturday’s 3-0 beating of title rivals Al Ahli.
“This game will not be easy,” warned Boss midfielder Ahmed Barman. “A large incentive for them will be to give their best appearance against the champions.”
New Al Dhafra boss Mohammed Kwid has insisted he cannot instantly alter the relegation-threatened club’s fortunes.
“I do not hold the magic wand to change the situation of Al Dhafra,” said Kwid, whose side hosts Dibba Al
Fujairah in his second game. “But we have turned the page.”
