The arrival of Alex Valera to the ranks of Al-Fateh generates a lot of expectations, since he has shown great performance in recent seasons. The striker arrived at the concentration of his new team in Slovenia on the night of last Wednesday, he had his first double training session on Thursday and this Friday he played a friendly match.
In the club’s planning was the preparation duel against Al-Nasr of the United Arab Emirates, which would serve to fine-tune the collective development of the squad. Due to the short time of physical work, coach Georgios Donis left the former Universitario player on the substitute band at the beginning.
For his part, Christian Cueva was the starter, but he could only complete the first part of the match. Finally, in the complementary stage, Alex Valera jumped onto the pitch and was quick in attack, although he was unable to make it on the scoreboard.
It is worth mentioning that the match ended 2-0 in favor of Al-Nasr and showed some aspects to improve in Al-Fateh. The Peruvian team will continue training in the coming days and the squad aims to correct the mistakes for the start of the 2022-23 Saudi Professional League.
