Muscat: Omani goalkeeping legend Ali Al Habsi will make a decision on his future over the next few days.
Al Habsi left his club team Al Hilal’s training camp in Austria, as he prepares to depart the Saudi club, with his future lying elsewhere.
Speaking to Times of Oman, Ali’s brother Sulaiman Al Habsi, said that he would be sitting down with club officials in Riyadh to decide the next course of action.
“Ali has left the Al Hilal training camp and he has already arrived in Riyadh,” he said.
“In the next few days, he will sit with the relevant people in Riyadh and they will finalise everything. That’s all I can say. Hopefully, things will be clearer soon, I think. But he has already left the Al Hilal training camp and has returned to Riyadh.”
Al Habsi broadcast his departure in a video posted on his teammate Mohammed Al Shalhoub’s social media accounts.
“I am very, very, very happy that these two years I had with Al Hilal were with you, my brothers, and with the wonderful fans who made me happy. These will be treasured memories in my heart for many years to come,” Al Habsi said.
“I will remain a follower, a supporter, and a person who holds you all dearly.”
