Abdeslam Ouaddou: Must wait for his third debut

Abdeslam Ouaddou: Must wait for his third debut

The defender last week returned to his first professional club after leaving Qatari side Lekhwiya.

However, his former employers have refused to release the 34-year-old's registration, leaving Nancy to await an international transfer certificate from FIFA before their new recruit can be cleared to play.

"That will take a bit more time," Nancy vice-president Nicolas Holveck told L'Equipe. "We hope it will be straightened out during January."

Explaining the situation that led to the dispute, Holveck added: "Given that the club he played for in Qatar (Lekhwiya) had not paid him for several months, the player unilaterally terminated his contract. The Qataris then refused to provide clearance for him to leave."

Ouaddou previously played for Nancy between 1999 and 2001 - before leaving for English side Fulham - but returned for two years from 2008. He spent last season on loan from Lekhwiya to Qatar SC.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
