“Shabab Al Ahli successfully managed to sign the star of UAE football and international playmaker Omar Abdulrahman until the end of the season,” said Shabab Al Ahli in a statement.

“Amoory” started his football career with Al Ain in 2008 before having a short stint in Saudi Arabia with 2019 AFC Champions League winners Al Hilal SFC 10 years later. He joined Al Jazira in 2019.

The 2016 AFC Player of the Year helped Al Ain win the UAE Pro League four times while he played an influential role in UAE's Gulf Cup triumph in 2013. He also appeared in the 2011 and 2015 editions of the AFC Asian Cup.

Abdulrahman will face Al Hilal SFC in the 2021 AFC Champions League as Shabab Al Ahli were drawn in Group A with the Saudi giants, FC Istiklol of Tajikistan and the winners of the play-off match between Qatar's Al Gharafa and AGMK of Uzbekistan.
