Algeria team: Will Bounedjah leave Al-Sadd this season?

Baghdad Bounedjah has a hard time with his situation. No longer part of his coach’s plans, he could leave Al-Sadd at the end of the season. The latter would have touches with the Saudi club Al-Nasr.

The Algerian international striker is going through a terrible slump. After missing his CAN, he was dismissed by national coach Djamel Belmadi from the double-confrontation against Cameroon, as part of the qualifying play-offs for the next World Cup, due to his decline in form. He worked hard in training, but he is still struggling to regain his best level and especially his efficiency in front of the woods.

And as a misfortune never comes alone, the striker in question is no longer part of the plans of his coach at Al-Sadd, Javi Garcia. And yet indisputable holder and historic scorer of the Qatari team, the Oranais has become overnight, an eternal substitute who is content to watch his team’s matches from the stands or the substitutes’ bench.

Indeed, he was dismissed for the second time in a row by his coach during the match between Al-Sadd and the Jordanian representative Al-Wahadat, as part of the fourth day of the group stage of the Champions League. Asia. A match that ended with a score of three goals to one in favor of the Jordanians in the absence of Bounedjah.

Destination Al-Nasr

Baghdad Bounedjah is going through one of the worst moments of his career, it must be said, because he has never experienced such a situation with Al-Sadd or with all the clubs where he has played. In the event that his sidelining persists, this could push him towards the exit door.

Under contract with Al-Sadd until 2024, he could therefore claim an exit voucher to join another club which will give him the chance to bounce back and relaunch his career. According to information reported by Arab media, the Algerian international striker has touches with the Saudi club Al-Nasr. The latter would be interested in the services of the striker in question and would like to hire him from the next summer transfer window.

The current season could therefore be the last for Baghdad Bounedjah (30) in Qatar, with whom he has spent seven seasons since joining in 2015 from Tunisian club Etoile du Sahel. He could well try a new experience elsewhere, probably in the Saudi league.
