Dibba Al-Fujairah player Ahmed Al-Ghais said, "Amateur club players in the first division do not get a chance to join the national football team, no matter how brilliant they are, and the reasons are many."

Al-Ghais indicated, in an interview with Emirates Today, that amateur clubs include many distinguished players, but they do not receive any follow-up.

He pointed out: "Many talented people, at a level comparable to the Arab Gulf League players, are not followed by the media, the national teams committee, or the technical and administrative staff of the national team."

Al-Ghais (26 years old) added: “I was close to fulfilling this wish, when Dibba was playing in the professional field three seasons ago, and I still look forward to that in the current season of the First Division League.”

Regarding his team’s career in the first division, he said: “Our greatest focus, at the moment, is on achieving a return to the Arab Gulf League, and we have prepared for that eminently.”

He said he was happy, as well, to regain his position with Egyptian coach Tarek El Sayed, as he returned to playing as a winger.

He continued: We currently have a good team, which has a distinguished reserve bench, and a group of experienced and youthful players, including former Al Ain and Al-Wahda player Mohamed Salem Al Dhaheri, and others distinguished, and the team will have a great deal.

And about the reason for not joining one of the professional clubs, he said: The circumstances of my work and my love for representing the Nakhudas prevented that.
