The retired Al Hilal star favored Tariq Al Tayeb, Moroccan Abdel Razzaq Hamdallah and Al Ittihad striker over Al Hilal’s top scorer Odion Ighalo.
Al-Hilal leads the Saudi League standings in points with Al-Ittihad, but is ahead of direct clashes.
Ighalo is this season’s top goalscorer in the Saudi League, which he started as a player for Al Shabab.
What did Tariq Al-Tayeb say?
In statements about the “Kora” program, the Libyan star confirmed Hamdallah’s technical superiority over Ighalo, but the Moroccan is suffering crises outside the stadium.
Al-Tayeb said: “Hamdallah’s technical abilities are better, and this showed before his tenure with Al-Ittihad and when he was a player in favor of Al-Nasr, but he suffers from crises outside the stadium that affected his level.”
He continued: “The Nigerian striker has other advantages, such as the ability to take advantage of opportunities, good positioning in the penalty area, receiving under pressure and his back to goal. He is a sniper.”
Al-Tayeb compared Hamdallah to Ighalo and emphasized that the former has a great talent and has many solutions in addition to his dribbling skills, while the latter has developed his abilities and improved over time, but he remains a classic striker who is good at scoring goals.
