Abroad: Kenyan international Aboud Omar fired by Bulgarian club

Aboud Omar has been sacked by Slavia Sofia, accusing him of insulting the club, his teammates and the state of Bulgaria. The 25-year-old left back became the first Kenyan to play in the Bulgarian league in 2016 and quickly helped the team to qualify for the Europa League.

In a statement, the club mentioned that Omar had been malicious for months and they were unsure as to his motivations for the said behavior.

Slavia President Ventsislav Stefanov speaks on firing Aboud Omar from club
I decided to remove Aboud Omar from the team and his contractual relations with the club will be suspended under the existing legal order. For no apparent reason, the player became cruel and arrogant.He learned the most vulgar phrases in Bulgarian and began to address them to his teammates without exception. The impudent Kenyan began to curse everything, related to life in our country and did not try to conceal his dislike for the Bulgarian state at all…
— Ventseslav Stefanov, Slavia President

Stefanov also mentioned that all the players of the seven-time Bulgarian champions unanimously backed his decision to relieve Omar of his duties. The Kenyan international is yet to comment on the issue.
