Fraud within Al Ittihad Club of Saudi Arabia
Al Ittihad goalkeeper Fawaz Al-Qarni revealed a resounding surprise, that he was subjected to a “fraud” inside the club.
The Saudi goalkeeper accused his former agent, Sultan Al-Balawi, of deception and procrastination in the delivery of his financial dues from the club.
Al-Qarni revealed, in statements to MBC, that this agent was taking advantage of the fact that the president of the Al-Ittihad at the time was his brother, in order to deceive him.
Al Ittihad had suffered for two whole years, before returning to competition strongly, in the last season 2020-2021.
Moreover, the goalkeeper of Al Ittihad said that after the departure of the president, this agent filed a case against him.
Fawaz Al-Qarni stressed that the agent won the case. And he got one million Saudi riyals from it, “unjustly”.
Al Ittihad goalkeeper admitted that this incident of fraud affected his football career for a long time. His level dropped dramatically, without the fans knowing about it.
In fact, for the last few weeks, reports talk about Al-Qarni’s transition from Al Ittihad to Al Nasr. However, the goalkeeper announced his continuation with Al-Ittihad for now. His contract ends in June 2022.
