Al Wahdas Yahya Al Ghassani determined to make history with UAE Yahya Al Ghassani centrehas been impressive in such a short span in the Arabian Gulf League. Al Wahda Yahya Al Ghassanis bio Date of birth:April 18 1998 Playing position:Winger Clubs:2015-2017 Al Ahli Dubai; March-June 2018 Paris FC; August Al Wahda Yahya Al Ghassani hopes a recent Presidential decree will help him realise his dream of playing for the UAE one day perhaps as early as in the Asian Cup next year. President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed issued a decree last Novemberallowing children of men married to Emirati women as well as those born in the UAE to register to play for sports clubs and potentially represent the country. Al Ghassani 20 has already made history by becoming the first son of a non-Emirati father to play in the Arabian Gulf League outside the quota reserved for foreigners after he signed a five-year contract with Al Wahda on Saturday. He had initially signed a one-year deal but after appearing in three games for the Abu Dhabi club he was awarded a fresh contract that potentially keeps him in the side until 2023. Born to an Emirati mother and a father who holds Tanzanian and Omani passports he hopes his early success at Wahda will get him through the national team door. The winger hasAdrian Mutu the clubs Under 23 manager and Laurentiu Reghecampf the first-team manager to thank for his rapid progress. Reghecampf brought him off the bench in the season-opening Arabian Gulf Super Cup game against Al Ain in Cairo. Al Ghassani quickly made his mark in the AGL too scoring against Kalba and Shabab Al Ahli Dubai. He was given his first start in a cup game against Al Wasl and did not disappoint scoring in a 3-0 win. I couldnt have wished for a better start to my professional career he said. Everyone at the club has supported me from the very first day. Ill be loyal to Wahda forever. He already has an admirer in another Wahda loyalist UAE superstar Ismail Matar. Yahya Al Ghassanijoined Al Wahdaon a one-year contract which later got extended to five. Al Wahda There is no doubt of his abilities but we shouldnt jump into any conclusions Matar said however. Yahya is in the first team because our technical staff has seen that he has good potential. Hes got a good future but he should continue to work hard and gain more experience at the top flight. If he can do that Im sure hes going hell achieve his goals both short and long term. Al Ghassani has certainly done the hard yards to get to where he is. He first joined Dubai club Al Ahli when he was 15 but left after it was merged with two other sides to form Shabab Al Ahli Dubai at the start of 2017/18. Considered at one point by Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain and Spanish clubs Malaga and Leganes Al Ghassani joined Ligue 2 outfit Paris FC on a three-month contract. Then he returned to his country of birth to gain more time on the pitch. I tried to get into a local club following the Presidential decree he said. But Al Ghassanis comeback was far from straight-forward. He was offered to train with the merged Dubai club but did not hear from them thereafter. Al Nasr invited him to train with their U21 side but it didnt go well for whatever reasons. That was when he received a call from Abdul Basit former Al Wahda goalkeeper and current team manager who linked him with the youth side. After training for two days with Adrian Mutu he recommended me to the club management Al Ghassani said. And then suddenly everything changed for me. I realised my dream had come true. UAE superstar Ismail Matar one of Al Wahdas most important players thinks highly of Yahya Al Ghassani. Chris Whiteoak / The National A keen footballer from the age of six Al Ghassani had played handball and a lot of tennis to improve his agility. His talent was first spotted by the Manchester United Academy. Just 14 years old then he was one of 10 players taken to Old Trafford to partake in a two-week camp. They were so impressed by his work ethic they asked him to stay for two more months. Al Ghassani has emerged as a UAE prospect. He is expected to be fast-tracked into the Olympic side whose bid to qualify for Tokyo 2020 begins in March. But he has an eye on a more immediate prize. I wish I get a call-up for the Asian Cup he said referring to the continental championship to be held in the country from January 5-February 1. If not I will keep trying.
