Croatian manager said that his team’s current goal is to win the Saudi-Egyptian Super Cup against Egyptian giants Al Ahly.

Ittihad Jeddah have had a very slow start to the season as they are currently bottom of the Saudi league table with two points.

They appointed former West Ham manager Bilić last month, but he is yet to get them on the right track as he only managed to pick up one point from three games.

But he insisted that he still trusts his players despite the current form, saying: “With hard work, the team will come back stronger than before.”

Bilić has also revealed his desire to win the Saudi-Egyptian Super Cup against Al Ahly which will take place in Cairo on November 27.

Al Ahly will first face Tunisian side Espérance in the return-leg of the CAF Champions League on Friday, November 9, after winning 3-1 in the first-leg in Alexandria.

Meanwhile, Ittihad will face Al Feiha in their next game in the Saudi Professional League on November 10.
