KARACHI: One of Pakistan’s key footballers Saddam Hussain on Thursday said that he was happy to have finalised a two-year contract with Kyrgyzstan’s Dordoi Bishkek, adding it would further help him improve his career.
“I am really happy as I got what I wanted,” Karachi-born Saddam told ‘The News’ from Lahore on Thursday from where he was set to leave for India along with the team for a two-match series against the arch-rivals. But he was quick to add that it was just the start and he would like to also play in other major leagues in the future.
“It’s just the beginning and I hope it will further help me improve my career and will make me prepare to play in a major league,” said the player, who can be used at any position.
He made it clear that during his stint with Dordoi he would be receiving $2000 per month besides other benefits.
Saddam has become the third player of KRL who has signed a deal with Dordoi being managed by former Pakistan’s Serbian coach Zavisa Milosavljevic. Kaleemullah and Mohammad Adil have already been recruited by the same club.
