UAE champions Al Ahli keen on Arsenal, Chelsea friendlies

Reigning UAE champions Al Ahli are looking forward to pre-season friendlies with Arsenal and Chelsea.

The club leaves for England for a five-match tour which will take in the London giants as well as Southampton.

Striker Faisal Khalil said it was a great opportunity for the club to test themselves against the world’s best.

“We will be playing some strong friendly matches and that will give us an indication of where we need to work,” Khalil said according to The National.

“I think we are playing against Arsenal and Chelsea during our London trip. They are two of the strongest clubs in the world and we could learn so much from them. A good game against them will set the tone for the rest of the season.”
