Al-Ittihad is head coach, Marcelo Jairado, is facing a defensive crisis ahead of the upcoming match against Al-Raed in the 18th round of the Saudi Pro League.

According to exclusive sources revealed to “Al-Riyadhiah,” Jairado is eagerly awaiting the results of medical examinations that defender Omar Hawsawi will undergo to determine his availability for the match.
