Defender Radanfah Abu Bakr has commenced new contract negotiations with Lithuanian club FK Suduva following the end of the 2017 season in which he helped the club capture the Lithuania Premier League title for the first time in its existence.
Abu Bakr, who has also played in Denmark, is currently back home and intends to make the best of the time while here for the Christmas holiday.
“The long season has taken a lot out of me both physically and emotionally, so I plan to enjoy my break, away from the game, with family and friend,” Abu Bakr said.
“I’m in the process of finalising my contract extension. Pre season starts mid-January and I want to help the team build on our success this season. I’m especially eager to test myself in the club’s Champions League qualifying campaign,” he added.
In 2017, FK Suduva became the first Lithuanian football club after Zalgiris Vilnius and FK Ekranas to pass three qualifying rounds in European competition in 2017-18 Europa League.
Reflecting on the league success, Abu Bakr said, “It’s an extraordinary feeling to win any league, but especially so in Europe. I’m grateful to God for rewarding our hard work and sacrifice with this historic achievement. it’s the club’s first ever league title so that makes it extra special.,” he said.
