No replacement signing for Al Hilal’s Carlos Eduardo

After an injury in the Asian Champions League Final last November, it has been confirmed that Al Hilal will not be replacing Carlos Eduardo.

Al Hilal journalists Abdulla Al Hanyan and Hamad Al Sowailhy confirmed yesterday evening that the club will not be replacing Carlos Eduardo in the foreign line-up, due to a rule which prevents them from doing so.

The rule prevents the club from dropping a player from the squad temporarily for a replacement signing, even when an injury occurs. The journalists also added that Al Hilal will only be adding one new signing over the winter break, which is a replacement for flop Matias Britos.

Carlos Eduardo was injured during the first 15 minutes of the Asian Champions League Final against Urawa Reds, which Al Hilal lost 2-1 on aggregate after a 1-1 draw in Riyadh. His injury was an ACL which put him out for at least 6 months.

Al Hilal’s foreign squad after the winter break will compose of: Omar Khrbin (Syria), Nicolas Milesi (Uruguay), Gelmin Rivas (Venezuela), Carlos Eduardo (Brazil), Ali Al Habsi (Oman) and a replacement signing for Matias Britos. It is worth noting that only 6 foreign players can be signed by Saudi clubs.

In terms of local players, reports from the Al Hilal club claim that head coach Ramon Diaz is happy with the current crop of players and doesn’t need any new signings ahead of the coming period, which includes the league, the cup and the 2018 Asian Champions League Group Stage.
