Cos­min Olaroiu was will­ing to give his new sign­ing Hugo Viana, the Por­tu­gal in­ter­na­tional, and Ciel, the Brazil­ian signed from Al Shabab, more time to adapt at the club. “Viana is a clever and tech­ni­cally good player but it was very dif­fi­cult for him to play in this hu­mid weather,” the coach said. “And about Ciel, we know about him very well. He is like a bomb; we don’t know when he’s go­ing to ex­plode. He needs to im­prove his dis­ci­pline on the pitch, though. I re­quested him for two or three things and he didn’t do it. And I haven’t seen much of Walid Ab­bas, who also came from Shabab, be­cause he is re­cov­er­ing from in­jury.”
