Abdulrahman won’t be rushed

Adelaide United come from behind to beat Central Coast Mariners

The 23-year-old is currently out with a hamstring injury, but despite him missing the last three weeks, coach Zlatko Dalic says he will not rush him cack into the team.

Al Ain has been without Abdulrahman for three weeks, and they have failed to score in their last two matches, but the coach refuses to confirm the playmaker's return for their next match on Tuesday.

He was quoted by sport360, he said: "We must not rush to play him [Abdulrahman] until he reaches the required degree of readiness because we face great challenges in the AFC Champions League and Arabian Gulf League.

"The presence of Amoory is important for the team even if they are late for two or three days, it is best to maintain the player."

Dalic added: "Certainly, the absence of scoring in two encounters in a row is something strange, because this thing has not happened since I took over the team [last March].

"We are working to strength-hen the offence during the next stage and realise that Fujairah is a good team.

"They showed the ability to stop our offensive strength at home, also showing proficiency in counter-attacks."
