The Al-Ahli club
of UAE has announced that Ali Karimi will join the team during the Asian
Champions League. In a press conference yesterday, the team’s president
added: “The Iranian football federation has agreed to let Ali Karimi play
for Al-Ahli against Al-Kuwait. The first leg match will be on 20th of Shahrivar and the second leg match
will be played on the 2nd of Mehr.” Ali Karimi will be returning to UAE right after the Asian Games to play
for Al-Ahli in the Champions League but he will probably miss the domestic
Sheykh Zaed Cup.
