“Upon arrival to the refugee camps in Romania, agents from the camp asked us about our professions and skills, for me, I was always good at football, and it was always my dream to become a professional player, So I told them about passion for football, a month later, I got contacted by “Dinamo București” a football club in Romania.” Osama Told PUKmedia in a special statement. 


Osama explained that he had played for “Dinamo București” for seven months, but due to living conditions he had to leave to Germany. 


After settling in Germany, Osama contacted “FC Augsburg” and continued his football career there for one year, Osama added.
