Man City’s Richards a big fan of Al Ain’s Abdulrahman

Omar Abdulrahman has received high praise from Manchester City right-back Micah Richards.

Omar Abdulrahman has received high praise from Manchester City right-back Micah Richards.

The 20-year old Al Ain midfielder was one of the UAE’s best players in their 3-1 Olympic group stage loss to Team Great Britain on Sunday and his performance was certainly not lost on Richards who saw him firsthand at London’s Wembley Stadium.

"The number 15 (Abdulrahman) is a very good player who plays beautiful football,” Richards said.

"He’ll be one of those players we should keep an eye on in the future."

The loss put the UAE on the bottom of the Group A table with one match remaining – against Senegal – whilst Team GB can finish top if they beat Uruguay in Cardiff on Wednesday.
