THE Nuno Espirito Santo he had been in the team for a year, but the fact that he had two close defeats in the league and AFC Champions League against Al-Shabaab and Al-Quwa Al-Jaw, brought his dismissal.
The fact that he maintained bad relations with some players also played a role in this. One of them and Karim Benzemawith whom there has been a feud since he was transferred to the team and the 49-year-old has reportedly been telling his circle that he is not suited to the football he plays.
