“All players here work hard, they only want to win titles and to make the supporters happy. They all play for the team and no one’s interested in any individual accolades. I think that’s the main reason for our success.

“I am really happy to be here. The club’s staff and players are very professional. I hope I can help the team to win more silverware in the future,” he concluded.

Introducing himself with a debut goal against then-league leaders Al Wasl, before contributing to four goals [A goal and three assists] against rivals Al Wahda won the fans’ hearts and earned him a POTY award nomination.

Al Ain will now switch their focus on the Asian Champions League as they are preparing for the round of 16 encounters against Qatari side Al Duhail on May 8 and May 15.
