He also added that he is on the team to give his very best and score goals for the club this season.
He further said that Levski is not new to him, as he has heard of the club, and when he was contacted by the coach to present the offer of joining the club to him, he researched about the club and discovered that they are one of the biggest clubs in Bulgaria he had to accept to the Offer. As he is an ambitious person and considering the club’s standards, it’s actually the best place for him to be in.
“I am very glad to be here. Before I came to Sofia, I received messages from “Levski” fans and I already feel that I am at home. The club took very good care of me. “I came to show my best, help the team and achieve the goals this season,” Abdullahi told LEVSKI TV.
“I have heard about Levski before, but when the coach and the club contacted me, I researched it and found out that Levski is one of the biggest teams in Bulgaria. I chose to come here because of the history of this club, and because of its goals and ambitions. As a player who wants to maintain a high level, you cannot refuse Levski. I hope that with my arrival I will bring success to the club.
Speaking on the position he’ll be handling in the team, he said that he plays three positions and he is fine with whatever position the coach picks for him, and he is ready to do well in the position.
“I play three positions – central midfielder, central defender, and right back, but it all depends on the coach, I am ready to play all of them. The coach will decide where to play and I am ready to play anywhere.”
