Major Saudi Professional Football League Deal Announcements
We are pleased to announce that Partner Bandar Al Hamidani and Al Tamimi‘s KSA sports team, including Pedro Castro and Nasser Al Ohaly, represented Al Hilal Saudi FC, a major football club in Saudi Arabia, in its successful negotiations to bring on board the playmaker Omar Abdulrahman, also known as “Amouri”. Amouri is regarded by many as the best football player in Asia and he returns to Al Hilal Saudi FC after 12 years with Al Ain of UAE. Al Tamimi‘s KSA sports team also successfully represented the club in the negotiations with Turkish football club Galatasaray in relation to the transfer of the French international striker Bafetibi Gomis, another world-class player.
In addition, Al Tamimi‘s KSA sports team assisted Al Hilal Saudi FC in respect of the transfer of Ezequiel Cerutti to Club Atletico Independiente of Argentina, and Achraf Bencharki to Racing Club de Lens of France.
