Mohamed Umair signs for VB

VB Sports continued strengthening its squad for next season by acquiring Victory captain Mohamed Umair.

Umair, who plays in defence has been playing his trade at Victory for the last four years.

According to Haveru, Umair said “You might think this change is because of a salary issue, but it is not. If that was the case I would not have been with the club (Victory) this year. I just felt like a change”

The new contract with VB is for one year.

Umair has been the third player to leave Victory recently for VB, the other two being goalkeeper Imran Mohamed and striker Assad Ali.


Decade of red ends for Imran

After nine long years spent being the custodian in goal for club Victory, keeper Imran Mohamed has signed on with the VB Sports Club.

There were many reasons for his decision but Imran told Haveeru he did not wish to discuss them.

“I signed a one year deal with VB, and after nine years at the club you don’t just change, there has to be a reason,” he hinted.

Starting his career at Club Eagles, Imran joined Victory in 2001. Over the last nine years Imran has won many trophies with Victory, including this year’s FA cup.

Imrans new club VB Sports will compete in next years AFC cup, which is almost the equivalent of Europe’s Europa cup. Imran and his new team will begin training tomorrow.

According to Haveeru, CEO of VB Sports Gahuthaan Haleem said that there are four other players to be signed in the forthcoming week.
