AHMED EID AL HARBI IN APPIANO GENTILE

Saudi Arabia Football Association president visits the Inter training ground together with Adel Alhowar, president of Inter Academy Saudi Arabia partner Sporti

APPIANO GENTILE – There were two special guests at the Centro Sportivo Angelo Moratti today: Ahmed Eid Al Harbi, the first freely elected president of the Saudi Arabia Football Association, and Adel Alhowar, president of Sporti, partner of Inter Academy Saudi Arabia.

A former goalkeeper, Ahmed Eid Al Harbi is widely viewed as a reformer in his country. One of the many things he's done is to push for the development of women's football in Saudi Arabia, where football plays a key role in society and politics.

Besides visiting the training ground, Al Harbi also had the opportunity to chat with Nerazzurri vice president Javier Zanetti.

One of the topics discussed – together with F.C. Internazionale global youth business director Barbara Biggi and the entire Inter Academy staff – was the possibility of Inter helping to develop youth football throughout Saudi territory.
