Al-Ittihad lost all hopes of winning any title this season. It ranks fifth in the ranking Saudi Professional League “Roshan League”, and was eliminated from the quarter-finals of the AFC Champions League, the semi-finals of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques Cup, and lost in the final of the Saudi Super Cup.

Al-Ittihad’s hopes of qualifying for the elite AFC Champions League seem very slim. “Al-Ameed” is away from the third place holder in the Roshan League (Al-Ahly) standings by a full 8 points, with only 3 rounds remaining before the end of the local tournament.

A frustrating experience for Gallardo at Ittihad Jeddah

Gallardo (48 years old) took over coaching Al-Ittihad last November, succeeding Portuguese coach Nuno Espirito Santo.

Statistically, Gallardo led Ittihad Jeddah in 30 matches in all tournaments, recording 14 wins, compared to 3 draws and 13 defeats, based on data from the global “Transfer Market” website.

Ittihad Jeddah scored 49 goals under Gallardo’s leadership, while the team conceded 53 times, in another disappointing statistic that confirms the extent of the great difficulties that Al-Ittihad experienced with the Argentine coach.

During the recent period, the Jeddah Union suffered many influential injuries, but the team’s fans do not see this as a sufficient reason to explain the team’s poor results, after last season, during which it won the Saudi League andLocal Super Cup.
