|Kenyan Teenage Sensation Attracts European Club by Kenyans247(1): Thu 09, April, 2020 01:45pm|
Abdulrahman Miraji, 16, is set to live out his dream after he earned a call to try out for Portuguese third-tier team Desportivo Alcochetense, his management announced on Thursday, April 9.
The young football sensation had earned the trials after impressing when he featured for Serani Boys High School during the 2019 Copa Coca Cola Under 16 Championship that was held in Kisumu.
Regional Sports Mombasa, a sports management agency that Miraji is signed, put out a statement informing of his next career step and wished him luck.
"Abdulrahman Miraji Regional Sports Management player from Mombasa is going to Europe in a few days to start a trial with one of the biggest teams in Portugal.
"Go Abdulrahman! It's your time now! Make us proud," the statement read.
Miraji was also set to feature for Spanish outfit Malaga FC's youth team, but the move never materialised.
The teenager plays for Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Coast Premier League side Mvita Youngsters. Miiraji expressed his joy at earning the opportunity to showcase his talent to the world.
He will, however, have to wait until the Covid-19 pandemic is controlled to turn out for the Portuguese team.
"I feel happy to get the chance. My dream has always been to play football in Europe and this is a step in the right direction. I will work hard and hope everything works out," Miraji told the publication.
His high school coach Daniel Lenjo stated that Miraji's development and growth in the game would inspire a lot of other young teenagers in Mombasa County.
"He was scheduled to attend a series of trials from last year and I am happy this one has materialised. He is a very talented lad and obviously deserves to make a move. It makes me happy as one of his coaches to see him prosper and it will also inspire the rest to work harder," Lenjo stated.
Desportivo Alcochetense has youth teams cutting across nine divisions in the European nation, inclusive of rugby and tennis teams.
The midfielder joins a growing list of several other young Kenyans whose talent has attracted clubs from beyond the continent.
