The club appealed against the decision of the AFC Disciplinary Committee to reject a protest made after their second leg AFC Champions League semi-final match on October 20, 2015.
However, the AFC Disciplinary Committee ruled on October 26 that Mr Assaidi had been validly registered in accordance with the UAE Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players by the UAE Football Association. He was therefore deemed eligible to participate in the match.
The decision has been notified to all affected parties who can appeal the decision within 21 days to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
