BANGKOK: Police Tero’s Mohamadou Sumareh has vowed to make his presence felt in Thailand.

The 26-year-old winger, who started training with the club on Wednesday, will have national teammate Dominic Tan for company. Dominic joined the club on a two-year deal in July last year.

“I saw familiar faces. I didn’t feel like a stranger here. Dominic helped introduce me to all the players. He makes everything easier for me on my first day.

“I may not be here until the end of the season but as long as I’m here, I will not let them down. I want to leave my mark here.

“Whether I’m the one who scores or provides an assist, the most important thing is to help the team collect full points, ” he said.

Sumareh, who completed his move on Sept 7, arrived in the Thai capital on Sept 29 and completed his mandatory quarantine on Oct 14.

Joining Police Tero as a free agent, Sumareh said he chose to join the club as the M-League had cancelled its mid-season transfer window due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“I will now have to wait until next year to play in Malaysia. But I wanted to continue playing, that’s why I’m in Thailand to explore something.

“Police Tero have shown great interest in me. They put a lot of effort to sign me. They provided all the necessary documents for me to travel to Thailand. I owe it to them to give my best.”

When asked whether other Thai teams have approached him, Sumareh said: “They came a bit late”. — Bernama
