Urgent Saudi Arabia: A surprise in the expected Clasico match against Al-Ittihad Club
Kalidou Coulibaly, a defender for Al-Hilal Club, is close to being fully prepared for the anticipated Clasico encounter against Al-Ittihad Club on Friday in the fifth round of Saudi Roshen League games, according to knowledgeable sources.
She said that following the back muscle injury he sustained two weeks ago, Coulibaly is anticipated to be fully prepared before the Al-Ittihad encounter.
The Arab Club Championship final between Nasraoui and Al-Nasr, which Nasraoui won (2-1), last August 12 saw Coulibaly suffer an injury. He departed the game in the 83rd minute, and Mohamed Jahfali took his place.
Kalidou Coulibaly: Who is he?
Kalidou Coulibaly, a Senegalese international player who recently joined the team during the current summer transfer period, would be out for at least two weeks and maybe up to three weeks due to injury, the Saudi Professional League team Al-Hilal Club stated today, Thursday.
Through its official Twitter account, the Al-Hilal Club confirmed: "Coulibaly underwent a treatment session at the club's headquarters, and the examinations indicated his need for a treatment and rehabilitation program that extends from two to three weeks."
Senegal's 32-year-old captain Kalidou Coulibaly joined Al-Hilal from Chelsea at the start of the current campaign, although he was absent for the 3-1 Saudi League triumph over Abha.
It was verified that Coulibaly missed Al-Hilal's matches in the Saudi Professional League against Al-Fayhaa, Al-Raed, Al-Ettifaq, and Al-Ittihad, respectively.
The medical exams that Senegalese Calido Coulibaly underwent also revealed that he had a ruptured posterior thigh muscle, which he had sustained during the derby match against Al-Nasr in the King Salman Cup for Arab clubs. This was confirmed by the Saudi daily Al-Riyadiah.
According to Saudi press sources, Coulibaly tore his posterior thigh muscle, which required treatment and rehabilitation. The newspaper emphasized that the player would be away from the leader's team for a period of two to four weeks.
After receiving two days of rest from the coach, the Al-Hilal team trained this evening, Thursday, in preparation for the Al-Fayhaa encounter.
Due to this injury, the Senegalese defender was unable to participate in last Monday's Saudi Professional League matchup against Abha.
