I'm sure I've made the right decision. I'd like to thank fans for everything and I hope that they will keep supporting the team. Thank you all!"
Al-Ittihad Club Saudi Arabia, or simply The Union, is the best-supported club in Saudi Arabia. They finished ninth in the Saudi Professional League last season.
