Several famous sports stars visited the facility in the last year to recover from injury, including Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland, as well as France forward Kylian Mbappé and his PSG teammate Neymar, who was treated in Aspetar before the pandemic.

Abdulaziz Jaham Al Kawari, executive director of the hospital, said: "The impressions of the athletes on Aspetar, demonstrate the position, as many stars of the European leagues and prominent athletes praised the quality of the services provided."

"When speaking about Aspetar as a trusted international institution in sporting circles, it is because it is the best in the world in the medical area, from a scientific research and field experience point of view, besides, all the requests received from international stars shows the progress that we have reached," he added.

Educating athletes

In a statement from Al Jazeera.Net, Al Kawari said: "Our message to athletes is to help them achieve the best performance possible, so the athlete who is treated at Aspetar knows that they are being cared for by an experienced staff in sports medicine, and our role does not end with just curing them, but we try to educate athletes after recovery."

"One of Aspetar's strengths is providing all the disciplines the athletes need in one place, in addition to the confidentiality of the athletes' personal information, as some clubs avoid revealing the names of injured footballers, such as the Bayern Munich."
