Al-Nasr Coach Receives Disciplinary Action Following Saudi El Clasico Defeat

The Saudi Arabian Football Association Disciplinary Committee issued new decisions following the end of the Roshen League 20th round matches this season.

The disciplinary committee has decided to fine Al-Nasr coach Rudy Garcia 35,000 riyals for not wearing an ID card in a match against Al-Ittihad Jeddah at the Radioactive Pearl Stadium.

The Disciplinary Committee also ordered Al-Nasr midfielder Abdul Majid Al-Salihim to pay 20,000 riyals due to his absence from a media interview following the same match after losing to Al-Ittihad Jeddah.

Ittihad Jeddah took the lead with a difficult and valuable 1-0 victory over their rivals, Al-Nasr, last Thursday at the top of Stage 20 at the Radioactive Jewel Stadium.

Al-Ittihad owes this victory to its Brazilian star Romarinho, who scored the only goal of the match in the 80th minute.

In the round matches, Al-Hilal won again, beating Al-Taawon by four goals without a response.

Ittihad Jeddah sits at the top of the Roshan League standings with 47 points after defeating Al-Nasr while the latter’s balance stopped at 46 points in the standings to start the league race.
