By the end of the qualifying meeting held today in the VIP Lounge of Hazza bin Zayed Stadium, Matar Obeid Al Dhahiri “Al Sahbani”, Al Ain FC Team Manager, presented Al Ain jersey holding the team’s stars signatures. In return, the Argentine’s team manager presented the River Plate jersey with the signatures of the starts of the team as a gift from the Libertadores champions.
Matar commented on the decision of the River Plate Team Manger to select the purple kit which is the official dress of Al Ain FC “We were surprised by River Plate wearing the purple shirt and I believe it is the first time we will be playing against a team wearing the purple outfit. However, it is nice to see all Al Ain City tomorrow in “purple”.”
Al Sahbani added: “I spoke to the manager of the Argentinian team about the reason why they chose to wear the official jersey colour of Al Ain Club in tomorrow’s match! He replied light-heartedly that they want to win Al Ain and win their luck. He also stated that the official colour of his team for this year will be the “purple” and this is the third time in the history of the club will be wearing the “purple””
