Kuwaiti Premier League side Kazma SC on Wednesday unveiled exciting Nigerian midfielder Omoh Michael, who signed a one-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
Omoh played for Romanian Liga 1 side Farul Constanta last season, before joining Kazma on a free transfer.
Founded in 1964, Kazma won the Gulf Club Champions Cup twice in 1986 and 1995, with their most recent success coming in the 2015/16 and 2017/18 seasons, winning the Kuwait Federation Cup on both occasions.
Omoh began his career at local side Gateway FC in 2008, before he moved to Dalkurd in Sweden in 2011.
The 30-year-old would go on to play for other Swedish sides Ostersunds, Orebro and Mjallby on loan, before switching to Romania’s Politehnica Iasi in 2020.
He’s also played for Israeli sides Hapoel Kfar Saba and Maccabi Ahi Nazareth and Academica Clinceni (Romania).
According to Omoh’s manager Kennedy Adeborioye, the creative midfielder had several offers from Asia and Europe during the off-season, but opted to join Kazma
“He had several offers from Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Oman and Vietnam, and even from Romanian clubs like Cluj and FC Botosani but he turned them down,” Adeborioye, popularly known as Boboye, told PUNCH Sports Extra.
“He chose Kazma because of their terms of contract and the club’s manager has already spoken to him about his plans for him. That’s why he choose Kuwait ahead of the other offers.”
