Kenya’s Harambee Stars international Abud Omar has today (Saturday) signed for Belgian Pro League side Cercle Brugge, the club has confirmed.
Omar, 25, was a free agent after controversially leaving Bulgarian top league side Slavia Sofia in April.
The club’s sports director Francois Vitali expressed delight at the latest move.
“We are happy to announce the arrival of Omar. He is a player with many qualities, and will certainly make progress and will show himself this season in the Jupiter Pro League,” Vitali said.
The defender, who played for Tusker FC in the Kenyan Premier League joined Slavia from Greece’s side Panegialios – playing 23 games for the Bulgarian outfit.
But his stint there was cut short in April after the club terminated his contract for allegedly being abusive towards his teammates and coaches.
Brugge, who gained promotion to the Belgian Pro League this year is home to another Kenyan Johanna Omollo, who is a defensive midfielder.
The club plays its home matches at Jan Breydel Stadium, Bruges and is owned by French club Monaco since 2017.
