Al Gharafa fans call on management to re-sign Rashid Sumaila

Supporters of Qatari side Al Gharafa are pleading to the club to re-sign Ghanaian centre-back Rashid Sumaila.

The 25-year-old guardsman was an instant hit during his loan spell from Kuwaiti side Al Qadsia to Al Gharafa under coach Pedro Caixinha in the 2016/17 season.

Following a stupendous campaign for the Cheetahs, the club's management made an attempt to acquire him on a permanent deal.

However, a deal could not be struck as coach Pedro Caixinha left for Rangers FC and Sumaila was heavily linked to follow the Portuguese trainer to Scotland.

The Ghanaian posted a video of himself during his time at Al Gharafa on twitter and the supporters of the club started asking management to bring him back to the club.
