Default BBC:African footballers flock to Bangladesh

Quote:
Awudu Ibrahim thought his playing career was over when his contract was not renewed at an amateur Dutch football club seven years ago. But soon he ended up in Bangladesh and now he is one of the star players in the Bangladeshi Premier League.

Far from his home in Accra, Ghana, Ibrahim has been enjoying playing football for Abahani in Dhaka, one of the top clubs in Bangladesh, for the last seven seasons.

"When my friend first told me about Bangladesh I was hesitant. I didn't know much about the country," Mr Ibrahim says.

"First, I came here for a practice session and then ended up playing for the club."

The success of players like Ibrahim has attracted many foreign footballers to the Bangladeshi Premier League, which became professional in 2006.
