Gulf News - Iranian Ali Karimi, one of the players lined up for the All-Stars team may not be available for the Adnan Al Talyani testimonial match.

Karimi, regarded as one of the best players in ball control in Asia, is presently playing for Dubai's Al Ahli Club. However, Karimi had to be replaced with Faisal Khalil following a knee injury when he clashed with Al Nasr's Salah Abbas in the first half of their league match last week.

Karimi is presently in Iran to see a specialist doctor there. He is expected to be back in Dubai today. "The doctor will decide the extent of the knee injury and advise him on whether he can play in the testimonial," said an official from Al Ahli.
