It is every footballer’s dream to play at the top level with a top club, be it on the domestic or foreign front.
That is equally the dream of Karela United midfielder, Umar Bashiru. Having tasted top notch football with Asante Kotoko briefly, the lanky midfielder certainly knows how it feels to be at the top with a top football club.
He was key to Karela’s botched dream of winning the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League title.
Bashiru, who spent most of his formative football years with WAFA, is itching for another top class football on any continent but will only be prized away by a contract with good terms and conditions.
“Honestly I’m happy at Karela but I’m ready, once I get an offer and once the terms and conditions are good for me or will favour me, I will leave for sure.
“Even in Ghana here, there are big clubs who are bigger than Karela.
“If they [the big clubs] call me and I see that the terms and conditions are good why not.
“But as I said, I’m very happy at Karela. They treated me well, everything went well for me in my first year in the club.
“So as I said, if a good offer comes, because that’s the dream of every player to play outside especially in Europe, even if not in Europe, one of the African countries like Egypt, Tunisia and the rest, the North African and even South African league are all great leagues.
“So as I said, if the offer is good and the terms and conditions are good fine, I will grab it and leave Karela.” Umar Bashiru told Africa-foot.com.
Umar Bashiru collected a respectable record in last season’s Ghana Premier League where he made 27 appearances.
He scored 3 goals providing three assists and claiming four man-of-the-match awards.
Karela United placed 8th on the league table with 46 points after 34 matches.
