the older 'Nejmeh' Club fans of Lebanon enjoy hearing the sound of his name as
a reminder of the good old days of soccer, where soccer was a mixture of love
and giving to the team and fans.
He was a cornerstone among many greats that made up a lot of the great history
for his Club, Al Nejmeh.
He still caries a big wound on his upper right thigh, that he earned over 35
years ago, courtesy of an intentional kick from the great Hementmen player,
Mardek, when Wanya scored two goals in their game and Nejmeh won that day 3-2.
he started in Beirut through a local team organized in the 50's and moved
later with all its players to the Nejmeh Club to bring many championships that
made this club the best in Lebanese history to date. The team which was known
as Al-Hamra, included many players like Sameh Shatela and his brothers, Muhi
Al-Deen Enani, Hassan Al-Mankosh and many more who later became stars in
Lebanon's soccer history.
He had all the qualities of a great player and a dangerous striker, as his tremendous
speed was the key to all Nejmeh's attacks and his scoring ability was to be
feared. His presence in the right time in front of the opponent's goal one of
his best skills and trademark as many remember the six goals he scored in the
8-0 win over the Hikma.
