Nigel de Jong - Al Ahli SC Qatar 1

Doha: Qatar’ Al Ahli SC announced the signings of Netherlands international Nigel de Jong and Islamic Republic of Iran’s Omid Ebrahimi from 1. FSV Mainz 05 and Esteghlal FC respectively on Wednesday.


The Amsterdam-born de Jong made his professional debut with Ajax Amsterdam, spending much of his youth there before moving up to the senior team in 2002.



de Jong’s career then brought him around the globe as he then moved to Germany, playing for Hamburger SV for four years, and to Manchester City where he assisted the club to an FA Cup title in 2011 and the English Premier League 2011-12 crown, as well as the FA Community Shield in 2012.

The 33-year-old struck a three-year-deal with Italy’s AC Milan in 2012 and then spent a short stint in the United States with LA Galaxy before transferring to Turkey’s Galatasaray SK in 2016 on a two-year contract.



He is highly regarded back home after helping the Netherlands finish second in the 2010 FIFA World Cup, losing 1-0 to Spain and a third place finish at the next edition in Brazil.
