I’ve always wanted to be a footballer.
My mum always told me it was a dream to play football.
When I was 10 years old I started playing in the local football team, and soon after that, in my 20s, I made the switch to football.
I joined the youth team at the age of 13, but I quickly realised that I wasn’t good enough to play, and decided to take my chances elsewhere.
So, after a couple of years, I joined a professional team in my hometown of Qiyana, where I’ve stayed ever since.
It wasn’t long before I made my debut for the national team, in the 2012 Asian Cup.
The first few years of my career were spent in the same place as I had been for so long: in a small club in the suburbs.
At that time, I could only dream of becoming a professional footballer.
I had always dreamed of going to the best academy in Europe, but the club didn’t want to pay me.
I thought, why should they?
In 2014, I finally got a break when I was invited to join the youth side of a new team in Qiyas.
From that day forward, I’ve remained dedicated to football, working hard and helping the team achieve our goals.
For me, football is my life.
I’ve never been able to express myself in any other way.
What I’m about is my football.
