Xavi experiences his own ‘Cheryshev Case’ with Al Saad

first_img If in the end it’s proven true, they would be thrown out of the competition, allowing Al Sadd to move into the next round in their place. Xavi’s team were eliminated originally on Tuesday, losing on penalties after a 2-2 draw in the game. Unfortunately for Xavi, he was one of the players to miss in the shoot out. In the 93rd minute of the game, Ibrahimi missed from the spot, too, which would have sent Al Saad through if he’d converted.  Ten Cate’s team could be about to follow in the footsteps of Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey… If you think that the Cheryshev Case could only happen in Spain, then you’re wrong. Qatari side Al Saad, who are captained by Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez, could be handed a reprieve in the Asian Champions League after their opponents allegedly fielded a suspended player. Al Jazira, who are managed by former Barça coach Henk Ten Cate, are the team in the firing line. Upd. on 22/11/2016 at 03:06 CETcenter_img Javier Miguel 10/02/2016last_img read more
