EXCLUSIVE: Werder Bremen offer ENPPI’s Abdallah Gomaa trial
Abdallah Gomaa, who spent the first half of the 2014/15 season on loan at 1. FC Union Berlin, could be set for an imminent return to Germany.
Yehia Ali, the player’s agent, told KingFut.com that Werder Bremen have offered to take the Egypt U-20 international on trial later on this month. The German club sent ENPPI their request for what is believed to be a 10-day period; however, Ali explains that the duration is still to be agreed by both clubs, while the Petroleum club have yet to respond.
Prior to joining FC Union Berlin on loan in January 2014, the 19-year-old winger had first spent a trial period with the club, where he managed to impress the coaching staff who offered him a one-and-a-half year deal with the option to buy.
However, former manager Uwe Neuhaus, who signed Gomaa, was replaced by Norbert Duwel early into the loan and the Egyptian struggled to break into the first team.
Gomaa still managed to leave FC Union on good terms despite only making three appearances in the 2.Bundesliga. Head coach Duwel previously said: “Abdallah has repeatedly indicated the huge potential he has. At the end, the language barrier was a large issue.”
While FC Union Berlin director Nico Schäfer added: “Despite all the effort, maybe the move abroad came a little too early for him [Abdallah Gomaa].”
Abdallah, the younger brother of Egypt international Saleh Gomaa, made it clear when his loan was cancelled that he was aiming for a quick return to Europe. “Berlin was an important experience for me and I wish Union and the fans much success. My goal is to be back in Europe soon.”
It should be noted that if a deal were to materialize, Abdallah Gomaa would be the third Egyptian to play for Bremen, after Hany Ramzy (1994-1998) and Mohamed Zidan (2005-2007).
