FC Barcelona or Manchester City were some of the teams that tried to sign the Asian Ronaldinho but were unsuccessful. Omar Abdulrahman always preferred to stay in the Arab Emirates and play in his country, but those who saw him play say that his ability is very similar to that of Ronaldinho at FC Barcelona.
Omar Abdulrahman played his whole life in the United Arab Emirates and for his country in some international competitions. That was when he began to become famous and they began to compare him with Ronaldinho. When he carries the ball and assists his teammates, you can see that he is a different player from the rest, something that also happened to Ronaldinho.
Many teams wanted to hire Omar Abdulrahman but were unsuccessful as the Asian Ronaldinho wanted to stay in his culture and collect a millionaire salary from the sheikhs. The Asian Ronaldinho came to win almost $100 000 per month plus prizes and benefits that he could only have in the United Arab Emirates.
Omar Abdulrahman is a very important player for the culture of his country and that he was nicknamed the Asian Ronaldinho made him even more important. If Omar Abdulrahman goes to another team or country, the young players of UAE are going to want to imitate what his idol does and they are going to want to go too. The idea of Omar Abdulrahman is that the players of the Arab Emirates see their country as the best option to live.
-Xavi Hernandez: “Omar can be the pioneer of the Arab Emirates and mark a before and after for his country. He is a great player and a great example for young players".
-Zlatko Dalic: "He is the best player in Asia and it is good to be called the new Ronaldinho".
-Trent Sainsbury: "All the time he is trying to throw a nutmeg and is almost impossible to defend".
