Jamal’s Argentina move 'good for Bangladesh'
Bangladesh national football team's head coach Javier Cabrera has praised captain Jamal Bhuiyan's move to Argentine club football, calling it a good move for Bangladesh and the player.
Speaking at a press conference to announce Bangladesh's preliminary squad for the upcoming FIFA Friendly matches against Afghanistan, the coach said, "It's good news that Jamal is having this experience in Argentina. It's good for him and Bangladesh football. It gives good exposure to everyone. We have talent in this country to play abroad and we have to be supportive of that."
Jamal, on Friday, signed a contract with Argentina's third-tier club Sol de Mayo. According to reports, the 33-year-old midfielder will receive a monthly salary of 13,000 dollars during his one-and-a-half-year deal.
When asked when the captain will be available at the training camp for the two matches, which are scheduled to be played in Dhaka on September 4 and 7, Cabrera said, "Jamal will join when his club releases him and it's the right of the club, we have to respect that. We will welcome him whenever he will be available."
"Hopefully, he will train with us in the last full week before the first game. It's still not confirmed but we are in conversations with the club. It's being done on a positive note and with good communication. So, there's nothing negative in that," the Spaniard added.
