FC Goa‘s Muhammed Nemil finds himself in a squad oozing with talent but knows that his hard work will pay off. The 19-year-old has returned from Spain and is looking forward to creating as much mayhem as possible. A product of the Reliance Foundation Young Champs Academy, Nemil spent 2 years with the Marcet High-Performance Academy in Spain.
During his time in Spain, Nemil attracted interest from many clubs. After his training at Marcet, he moves to third-division club FE Grama to join their U-19 squad. He quickly impressed the staff and was promoted to the senior team.
Rayo Vallecano felt that he was not up for their reserve squad but allowed him to join the third team. But they soon realised that he was just too good to play at that level.
Finally, Sabadell FC were keen on having them in their reserves. FC Goa realised that their player has matured enough to play in the ISL and thus Nemil smartly choose against playing 5th Division Spanish Football.
Muhammed Nemil is at the right place
And FC Goa were not wrong about their player. He has made the best use of his chances and is turning heads. Coach Juan Ferrando always had an eye on Nemil’s situation in Spain. He believes in the talent of the youngster and has boldly stated that the player will always be a part of the squad either on the pitch or the bench.
He has an uphill task at hand though. With the likes of Alberto Noguera, the player with the most assists last season, and Brandon Fernandes in his position, Nemil will have to fight the best. Jorge Ortiz, Princeton Rebello, Edu Bedia and Glan Martins are just a few others who will run FC Goa’s midfield this season.
Should coach Ferrando play a 4-3-3 formation, the competition and potential in the squad will be out of this world. Even if Nemil hardly plays, he is learning from the best. The right guidance and support at this age will be very crucial in the years to come.
