Quaresma Moves to the Middle East

Ricardo Quaresma - Al Alhi

In a bizarre, yet unsurprising move, Ricardo Quaresma has signed a contract at Al Ahli, in the UAE. Quaresma signed a year and a half contract, tieing him the the club until the end of next season. The winger had been without a club for a short time after he mutually terminated his contract at Turkish club Besiktas. At Besiktas, Quaresma enjoyed a rebirth, so much so that he was recalled to the Portuguese National Team, and even traveled with the squad to last summer’s European Championships. Now, however, a call-up is unlikely. A large factor in this move was surely the money, as he was reportedly courting interest from such clubs as Liverpool in recent times. Now, however, he will be the star of the middle east, if, that is, he can keep his temper under control.
