Ahmed Yasser the Qatar international has joined the J League with Vissel Kobe. It is understood this is on a six-month loan deal from his club in Qatar Al-Duhail.
Multi-Cultured Vissel Kobe
With Ahmed Yasser joining Vissel Kobe he becomes the ninth different nationality in the dressing room. He also becomes their second foreign signing of the summer transfer window.
Vissel Kobe first signing of the summer was none other than Andrés Iniesta from Barcelona. This is not bad company at all then for the player to be in.
Although the side has an array of international talent their new signings need to start performing. As the J League side have only won two of their last five matches and currently sit 16 points off the top of the league.
This gap would be bigger too if it wasn't for topside Sanfrecce Hiroshima recent poor form.
What to know about Ahmed Yasser
The player has 29 caps for his country Qatar and made his debut in 2013, starting in a 2–1 away loss against South Korea. While the 24-year-old plays in central defence and is a key part of his countries plans as they prepare for the Asian Cup in the UAE.
As for playing style through reading up on the player, he looks like a strong central defender that can play a bit of football passing it up from the back.
It looks like the defender is only on a short-term loan deal until the end of the season but he could still play a big part for his side in the second half of the season. The player will wear the number 5 shirt for his new side and if he is ready will make his debut at home on Saturday against Júbilo Iwata.
In addition to Vissel Kobe adding to their multi-cultured squad, they have also brought the first ever Qatar player to the J League. This was something not lost on the player as he said in his press conference "I am delighted that I am part of a wonderful club like Vissel Kobe as the first Qatari player in the J-League, and I am really pleased. I am now looking forward to meeting everyone at Noevir Stadium Kobe."
