Gambian international Omar Jasseh alias Waterman will know the fate of his future in San Jose Earthquake in the Major League Soccer (MLS), as he expects to meet his coaching staff in two to three weeks to discuss his way about.
OmarJasseh, the former Real de Banjul player signed for the MLS club on April 14, 2010, when he was 17-year old but since then failed to make an impact. The Gambian appeared in only 5 games for the Quakes in one-and-a-half seasons, and failed to notch a goal or assist in his 89 total minutes of action. This season, Jasseh played the last 13 minutes of the 2-0 away loss at Chivas USA on July 6 and the second half of the West Bromwich Albion friendly on July 12.
In an interview with The Daily News sports Jasseh expressed his disappointment with the club, saying he is doing all he can but the coach is over sighting him and if he is not played regularly he will quit for another club.
Jasseh revealed that the problem started when he came to represent The Gambia U20 recently and could not make it, adding that he was waiting for GFA to change his ticket back to the US, which took long and they (Quakes) were not happy with.
“Right now things are going well with me,” said Jasseh.
He made this paper understand that there are number of clubs interested in him but refused to revealed names of the clubs.
Asked if he loves to stay at the MLS, Jasseh said, “To be honest I want to leave and my agent is working hard to make that happen. I told him that I want to play in Europe even though some MLS club wants me.”
