Arsenal complete Salah’s namesake transfer

first_img Loading… Arsenal have completed the signing of highly-rated Feyenoord starlet Salah-Eddine on a free transfer. And Gunners fans were quick to joke that Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah better watch out for his 17-year-old namesake. Salah-Eddine, known as ‘Salah’, will join the club’s youth set-up and compete for a spot in Arsenal’s Under-23 side. Predominantly a central midfielder, the Dutchman spent his youth career in the Netherlands and came through the ranks at Feyenoord. He said: “It feels great to join a massive club like Arsenal. “It’s a good environment for me to work on my development and hopefully through the academy I can become a first-team player. “They first contacted my dad and then I went there for a week just to see what the club is all about, and after that they didn’t really have to say anything. I immediately knew that it was the right club for me.” Arsenal fans were quick to welcome Salah to the club and many joked that his Anfield namesake should be worried.

He ordered those whose cases were serious to be transferred to the state specialist hospital and insisted that their case should be treated with utmost priority.“They were on state duty as it were and we must accord them that honour. I came to cheer them up and to tell them that government will make sure theyget the best of treatment until they recover fully,” observed the governor.The state Sports Commissioner, Monday Ukoh, told journalists that he was grateful to the governor for the prompt reaction and interest for the well being of his fellow statesmen.He sympathised with the club for the loss of a life and prayed the good lord to give the supporters club and the family of the bereaved the fortitude to bear the loss.In his reaction, Akwa United FC Chairman, Mr Paul Bassey, said it was a sad day for Akwa Ibom sports and thanked the governor for alleviating the pains of the injured.“You needed to be there to see the relief on their faces as the governor spoke to them individually.
