Becoming a professional player delights Muhammed Sanneh

Wednesday, February 06, 2019

Gambia U20 defender Muhammed Sanneh said he is happy for becoming a professional footballer after a successful trial that led to his signing of contract with Estonian top-tier club Paide Linnameeskond.

Sanneh left Gambian giants Real de Banjul to sign a two-year deal with Paide, who have compatriot striker Alassana Jatta in their ranks.

He told Gambia Sports that he is happy for signing his first professional contract with Paide. “I’m happy about my first professional contract and I am very grateful to Paide for this opportunity. I am pleased to be able to impress Paide coach during the test trial,” he was quoted on the club’s official website.

Muhammed, a younger brother of Anderlecht and Gambian international Bubacarr Sanneh, said he have been well received since the first day at the club. “I have been very well received since the first day and, although I had opportunities in Denmark (with a trial at FC Midtjylland), I felt right from the start that this is the best place for me to start my journey in European football. I will try to work harder to achieve what my (elder) brother has achieved.”

Muhammed and Alassana will get their professional careers underway when Paide visit league champions JK Nõmme Kalju in the league opener on March 8.
