Wael Gomaa To Join Ooijer At Rovers

Wael Gomaa To Join Ooijer At Rovers

Blackburn Rovers could soon follow up the capture of Andre Ooijer with another International defender in Wael Gomaa.

The six-foot plus 30-year-old Egyptian, who was linked with a move to the Premiership, and Rovers among others earlier in the summer is currently with Egyptian champions Al-Ahli, one of the biggest, if not the biggest club sides in Egypt, if not African Nations.

Rovers are apparently in talks with the central defender, who comes up against the likes of quality forwards like Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto'o in the African Nations Cup, is very highly rated.

I'VE GOT TO BE HONEST OTHER THAN BREIFLY MENTIONING HIM IN THE JOURNALS A FEW WEEKS BACK NEITHER HAVE I. I DO HAVE IT ON GOOD AUTHORITY THAT ROVERS ARE SERIOUSLY LOOKING AT THE GUY AND TALKING WITH HIM, HE'S VERY GOOD APPARENTLY! IF GOMAA ARRIVES, WITH OOIJER ALSO IN ARE THEY PAVING THE WAY FOR NEILL'S DEPARTURE? OOIJER CAN PLAY AT RIGHT BACK CAN'T HE.

he can indeed and the way Neill played at the weekend, well will we miss him?? if the Liverpool story is correct then I'd like to see Kromkamp come in the opposite direction, as he can also play in midfield, although Emerton looks a promising rite back!!

Hey all, Iam an egyptian by the way, and im a supporter to Al-Ahly team, Egypt and whole Africa champion, and the best team in the middle east now, Wael Gomma has been playing for Ahli for about more than 7 years and i think he's the best defender Ahli has bought from other teams in the last 10 years, besides he has a lot of experience in his position in the field, but he has one disadvantage, he is a bit aggressive, like the Italian defenders, that's all i can say about him, and we all here in Egypt want him to go to your club, one of the best clubs in England and wish him best luck there. Thank you.

Hey guys, I can tell u about Gomaa, I am a big fan of Ahly, we really gonna lose the lad! he joined about 7 years from a small club and used to have many cons but with a big team like Ahly and lots of work from our portugese genius manager, he switched int a John Therry class. Very good marker, eye on the ball, action on the ball and very positive attitude. Good luck Gomaa, we gonna miss u man. One more thing, he's been the best defender in the African nations cup 2006 and a main reason why we, Egypt won the cup.

hi guys i am also Egyptian and a big fan of Al Ahly team , You only need to know that it is the african team of the century ,the biggist egyptian ,arab and african team. I know Gomaa personally he was a freind of mine ,we used to go to the college together and by the way he speaks english well as he graduated from the faculty of arts department of english. Wael is really the best defender in Egypt and he will be a great player in your team i hope him the best where ever he goes may be he was a little rough but i think he is a wise player now after 7 years in al ahly he is really a good add to the rovers and i can say that you gained at least 40 million fans in Egypt because you are about to sign Wael Gomaa to your team so i wish you and him the best of luck my regards thank you
