Major General Abdullah Al Marri has been appointed as the new Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, as the successor to the late Khamis Al Mazeina.

For fans of Al Nasr Football team, Al Marri is also the defender who played an integral role in the club winning the UAE League, the Super Cup, and the President Cup on 3 occasions in the 1980s.

With several other football wins to his name, Major General Al Marri is perhaps best known as ‘the man you count on when the going gets tough’.
