KERALA BLASTERS EXTEND CONTRACTS WITH MUHAMMAD SHAEEF, MOHAMMED AIMAN & MOHAMMED AZHAR UNTIL 2026
Kerala Blasters FC is happy to announce contract extensions with three upcoming young native talents in Muhammad Shaeef (20) Mohammed Azhar (20) & Mohammed Aiman (20) until 2026.
These three players with their own particular set of expertise will be manning different halves of the pitch, after having spent time within the Kerala Blasters development system honing their skills and getting game time against the best players within their age bracket from around the country, in various development tournaments.
It is through steady and consistent performances through that period,in tournaments like Durand Cup and RF Development League especially over the last season, that these players have managed to make their ways into the Kerala Blasters senior squad.
Mohammed Aiman and Mohammed Azhar are identical twins but their on-field game remains vastly different, Aiman being a Left Winger is known to launch attacks from the wings, feeding the ball to the strikers in attacking positions or even creating goal scoring chances himself, whereas Azhar being a central midfielder is more proficient in moving the ball forward and creating various plays across the midfield.
Compared to Azhar & Aiman, Muhammed Saheef is a relatively new entrant within the Kerala Blasters set-up, however his performances with the developmental games and overall talent to man the backend of the formation makes him a player with plenty of promise. He even made his senior team debut in the recently concluded Super Cup, 2023 in Kozhikode.
Commenting on these extensions, Karolis Skinkys, Kerala Blasters Sporting Director, said:
“”Extremely happy to see three young upcoming players, from our Kerala Blasters Youth system rising through the ranks and making a place within the nucleus of the senior team, all these players bring along their own specific skill sets and raw talent which will add more depth and variety to our main squad. I wish them nothing but success and growth as players in this upcoming phase of their careers.”
The Club would like to wish Mohammed Azhar, Mohammed Aiman and Muhammed Shaeef on their contract extensions, We hope they will use this opportunity with the club, as a platform to showcase their talent and put forward an exciting brand of new age football.
