Croat Foster set to sign for Al Arabi


Croat Ivan Foster reached Doha in the early hours of Monday to join QNB Stars League team Al Arabi. He will sign the contract after passing the medical.

Al Arabi had recently parted ways with Tunisian defender Ammar Jemal by mutual consent in a bid to bolster the side by recruiting another overseas player.

The Dream Team are languishing at ninth place with only nine points after the first phase. They had replaced Tunisian coach Qais Yaakoubi with Croat Luka Bonacic as they sought a turnaround in their fortunes.

Meanwhile, Saad Natiq rejoined the team training after representing Iraq at the recent Gulf Cup in Kuwait.

Al Arabi will face Al Sailiya in the QNB Stars League’s Week 12 on 12th January at the Al Ahli Stadium. In between, Bonacic’s wards defeated Al Mesaimeer by a solitary goal in a friendly.
