KUALA LUMPUR: Nazmi Faiz Mansor created Malaysian football history when he landed a three-year contract with Portuguese Primeira Liga club Beira Mar yesterday.
The 17-year-old signed terms with the club following a successful trial and is set to become the first Malaysian to play in the top flight of a major European league.
His agent, Marco Guimaraes, confirmed the deal.
“Nazmi has signed a three-year contract to play for Beira Mar’s first team. I cannot reveal more,” said Guimaraes when contacted yesterday.
Nazmi’s signing means he will no longer play with the Young Tigers A in the Singapore League though he will continue to turn out for the national Under-22 team.
The talented midfielder will link up with his national teammates in Hungary this week where the national juniors are undertaking a European tour in preparation for the AFC Under-22 Championship qualifiers in Myanmar next month.
