Saudi football club Al-Nassr have announced the termination of the contract of Moroccan player Abderrazak Hamdallah, the team’s first striker. On Twitter, Al-Nassr said management had terminated the contractual relationship with the player for a legitimate reason and in accordance with FIFA regulations.
Despite the rupture, the press release specifies that the club “reserves all the financial and legal rights which result from it before the competent judicial authorities”.
The club’s iconic player asked to terminate his contract earlier this year, marking a new turning point in his relationship with the club, where he has played 108 games and scored 115 goals, in addition to 25 assists. The club had firmly refused the termination, leading to the player’s apathy.
The Saudi press then quoted the club’s management as confirming their concerns to “keep the player in the ranks of the team” while seeking to restore his level and his ability to score.
For the title of the 2020/2021 season, the Moroccan player had played only half of the matches in the Saudi league, accusing of injuries for 10 games and not being part of the selection for the other 5. Since the start of the season started, he has not been selected to play in 5 of the 10 games.
