VIDEO: Al-Ittihad player runs into Al-Hilal manager Jorge Jesus

64-year-old sent tumbling on sidelines of Saudi Pro League match.



Al-Hilal manager Jorge Jesus was sent tumbling after Al-Ittihad Club’s Thiago Carleto ran into him on the sidelines of a Saudi Pro League clash between the two sides on Thursday.

The Brazilian left back hurtled into the 64-year-old, who fell head over heels in front of the dugouts at Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium in Riyadh.

Former Benfica and Sporting Lisbon coach Jorge Jesus took up his role in charge of Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia earlier this year and will be hoping to guide one of the league’s founding clubs to a title win.

A goal from former Swansea striker Bafétimbi Gomis helped them to a 3-1 home win, leaving the side second while Al-Ittihad languish last, still yet to win with seven games played.
