The 46-year-old manager had stated, post the match, that he was impressed by Kahraba’s skills and pace.

“I have played several great games with Al Ittihad, and the game against Atletico Madrid and Simeone’s praise was historic,” Kahraba told ON Sport.

“I went to take a picture with him [Simeone] after the game, my pleasure with his praise was much bigger than scoring or assisting in the game.”

The 22-year-old international is having a fine season at Saudi Arabia, having played a total of 20 games for Ittihad, scoring 13 goals and registering three assists in all competitions.
