Nuno Santo took advantage of his team's victory over Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya to send a message to the fans of the "Brigadier" about the criticism he has been subjected to in the past period.
Before the Iraqi club's match in the AFC Champions League, Al-Ittihad did not succeed in winning the last 5 confrontations, and the result was losing the top of the Saudi league standings while moving away from the new leaders Al-Hilal by 6 points.
The Jeddah Tigers finally managed to win by defeating Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya with a last-minute goal from Abdul Razzaq Hamdallah to give them the top of their group in the Champions League.
After the match, the Portuguese coach told the press conference in response to the criticism: "I invite everyone to follow the programmes and analyses to understand how the movements between the players are managed, so they can understand our work more."
"The team needs the full support of the fans, and today the fans supported us very much, I thank them for that, they were the most important supporter for us."
