Signed from Midtjylland, from Denmark, after being noticed in the service of Mafra, where he was on loan in the first half of the season, young central defender Osman Diumandi, aged 19, made his first statements after signing a contract with Alvaladi club, until June 2017.
“I am very happy to finally be at Sporting. I can’t wait to get started so I can continue to progress and show what I can do on the field. It’s a childhood dream because we’re talking about Sporting, the biggest Portuguese club. It is the right sports project for me and the best place I can be in, ”he said in statements he received to Sporting TV.
It is explained that his name does not have any accent, so it appears on Dumande’s T-shirt. What is certain is that he feels adapted to Portuguese football and does not hide his satisfaction at being able to develop under Ruben Amorim. “Young people talk a lot about him, he bets a lot on them, puts them in the game and gives them confidence. As a young player, I think he is the best coach I can work with », he said.
Surprised by the atmosphere that prevailed on Wednesday evening in Alvalade, after witnessing the blow inflicted on SC Braga (5-0), the defender also left a promise to the fans: «I will work hard to continue developing, and I will not be disappointed. I am ready for this challenge.”
