Péricles Chamusca

Press reports revealed an imminent agreement between the administration of Al-Hilal club and the Brazilian Péricles Chamusca, coach of Al-Faisali, to lead the team.

This comes after the official dismissal of the current Croatian coach, Zoran Mamić after the five-nil loss of the team in front of Al-Taawoun in the semi-finals of the Cup of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques.

Al-Hilal administration has expressed its desire to get the Portuguese Jesús back, the former coach of the team, who gave his consent to return before going back today and says that he has a European offer, to confirm a final agreement with Chamusca, who will lead the training today.

Al Hilal is facing a crucial match against Al-Taawoun on Monday for the 28th round of the Muhammad Bin Salman Professionals’ League. It is expected to be the first encounter of the Blue Capital team with the Brazilian coach.

Al Hilal is trying to catch up with the last opportunity to reconcile with its fans by winning the league cup, where it is ranked second with 63 points, one point behind the leading team, Al-Nasr. Al-Hilal has a postponed match in front of Al-Taawoun that will take place next Monday.
