It seems Al Ain has had enough now with two of the star signings that they had made last year and the club is all set to get rid of them.
Ryan Babel is one of them yes, while, the other one is Emmanuel Emenike.
Both have proved to be complete failures in the top flight in United Arab Emirates.
Babel, in particular, has been on the target of the club fans, not only for his inability to produce the goals, but, also, for being undisciplined on occasions with his conduct.
Emenike, on the other hand, has been slightly better in comparison, but, he has not been able to do justice to his name either.
The Nigeria international had, however, joined Al Ain on loan only and in all probability, he would go back to his original club which is Fenerbahce.
Interestingly, Babel is also expected to follow him there.
Mr. Hamdoun, one of the chiefs at Al Ain, accepted in his recent interview that the duo might be moving to Turkey.
In the words of Hamdoun, “Ryan and Emmanuel are big names, but, it’s not strange in professional Football that big names join a club with big reputation and big expectations and are not able to live up to that. It happens.”
“It’s about the desire to play as well. At times, the big players, when they go to a club, they lose interest in playing for them and that, I think, has been the case with the two of them here at Al Ain.”
“For Emmanuel, there’s been approach from a Chinese club, but, I think both he and Ryan, they are more likely to go to Turkey.”
Al Ain is the topper in the standings in the UAE top division with 40 points right now.
