Originally called Al Esteqlal and founded in 1961, Qatar Sports Club became its official name in 1981.
Qatar Sports Club confirmed in a statement on Sunday the termination of Algerian defender Djamel Eddine Benlamri’s contract. The player joined the club last July as a free transfer during the summer transfers when his contract with Lyon in France expired.
Qatar club wrote that this decision came after consultations between the player and the club, confirming that April 17 will be the “last day” for the player.
Benlamri hid his yellow and black striped team uniform and is now looking at the football industry and trying to get a deal with another club. Reports have suggested that the player may return to the Saudi Arabian Al-Shabab football club, where it was considered his first experience in a foreign team outside the Algerian league as well as the club in which he spent most of his career .
The 32-year-old footballer proved his prowess especially through a triumphant match at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations hosted by Egypt and 2021 FIFA Arab Cup in Qatar.
His journey with international tournaments has fallen short this year as the Algerian soccer federation suffered an unexpected loss from the Cameroonian team during a Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifier. It snatched Benlamri and his team’s ticket to compete in the big football event this November.
At the end of March, Algeria’s soccer federation lodged a complaint with soccer’s world governing body, FIFA, about the defeat in the qualifying match and asked for a rematch, Al-Jazeera reported.
The move came after the football association’s president resigned. Algeria claimed that its defeat against Cameroon in Algeria’s stadium, Blida, was “distorted” by the referee’s performance.
“The FAF [Algerian football federation] is determined to use all legally permissible means to restore his rights and to play the match again under conditions that guarantee the honesty and impartiality of the arbitration, ”the team noted, adding that they are also opening an investigation. ”After the match. .
