Lebanese champions Riyadi Beirut have been the only side to begin their preparations for the upcoming season after reinforcing their squad with several signings, as well as the naturalization of Egyptian star Ismael Ahmad which will give the yellow side a big boost.Q: What can you tell us about your reinforcements to the squad for the upcoming season?A: As you may know, we have been always planning for the future since the first day that coach Slobodan Subotic came to the club and signed for three years [one year remaining]. First, we had to wait for the federation to announce the "A LIST" players, and when they did we chose the players that fit with us, also taking into consideration that Ismael Ahmad became a local player after receiving nationality. We didn't want to change a lot in the team because we have some early tournaments to play, but year by year we are introducing new blood into the squad.Mario Abboud has been playing with uncompetitive teams in the past years so he needs some time but he will be fine.
