Al Hilal president Prince Abdul-Rahman Bin Musaid has praised Egypt’s striker Ahmed Ali for his current form for the club, affirming that there is no other player like him in the team.

“Ali is a good and skilled player. What makes him unique is his strength and enthusiasm,” Bin Musaid quoted as saying on Saudi newspaper Al Jazeera.

The 22 year old boosted the Saudi giants to cement their place on the Saudi league summit after scoring a goal and laying the assist for another against Ittifaq on Friday.

Bin Musaid is convinced Ali, who joined the Saudi club last January on loan from Egyptian side Ismaily, is capable of delivering a greater outcome.

Al Hilal are leading the league table with 49 points, nine ahead of ittihad, but this season’s title race is not over yet according to Bin Musaid.

“We still have to gain seven more points from the next five games to insure clinching the title,” the Al Hilal president concluded.
