Ghanaian midfielder Lamine Moahmmed has joined Portuguese LigaPro side União Desportiva Oliveirense on a three-year deal after leaving Slovakian outfit AS Trencin.
The 20-year old former Accra Lions player thus makes a giant step in his football career after moving from Central Europe to Portugal in a bid to break into mainstream European football.
Mohammed’s move to the club is seen as a major coup for the LigaPro outfit, who are preparing a strong team for next season as they battle for top-flight promotion.
The versatile midfielder joins goalkeeper Arthur, defender Pedro Machado, winger Sele Davou and striker Miguel Silva as the club’s new reinforcements.
UD Oliveirense were 12th on the league table before the season was halted due to the outbreak of COVID-19, but the club has returned to training and the midfielder is expected to join the team as preparations for next season begins.
Ghanaian players have enjoyed success in Portugal, with the likes of Joseph Amoah and Alhasan Wakaso playing big roles for Vitoria Guimaraes. Bernard Mensah, Emmanuel Boateng and Wakaso earned big moves to bigger leagues plying their trades in Portugal.
