Abdul Rahman denies media reports
Al Ain’s midfielder Omer Abdul Rahman denied media reports that he has received offers from Portuguese or Belgium clubs saying that nobody has spoken to him about the issue.
“I would love to start a new experience of my career as a professional footballer,” the 20-year-old said.
“I’m not planning to start big. Above all, I have to be realistic and think reasonably. I would like to begin with a small club at any level in any European league from which I can make my way through,” he said.
“This is not because I have been applauded by the football fans or the English Press. I believe that many of the squad’s members have the talent and ability to play abroad and I’m one of them.
“Let’s be honest. Without true international professionalism we will have no chance to serve our national teams. I’m not thinking of myself alone, but this move will be of great benefit, both for me and for my nation,” he said.
“I would like to make it clear that any offer from any European club would be most welcomed by me.
“I didn’t think of being under the spotlight to feel happy. In fact I was very sad for ejecting from the championship at this early stage. We would have been more impressive should we have had some luck to proceed to the knockout stage. But, this is sport. I would love to see my team winning rather than making personal success,” he said.
