Finally! Rahman Made It.

We finally made it. Rahman finally made it. A little more than a week ago MSO got a player representing Denmark on international level. A 28 seasons struggle ended with a wish came true when Ahmed Abd El Rahman getting his debut.

Last night the road to U20 world cup XXVII started with Ahmed Abd El Rahman playing the entire match against Hanguk U20. A match where the defending champions had to give their best to overcome a surprise lead for the visitors in the first minutes of the match. Denmark was the stronger side of the two and got a deserved 2:1 win in front 180000 spectators at Piggy Arena.

It is a milestone in MSO history and approval of things we wanted to change back in January 2016. Money spend bad, non-compatible squads, poor training programs to make unrealistic aims even more unreachable to reach had to be stopped. We wanted a healthy economy, less transfers and a mainly homegrown squad with a solid plan for training and development and accept that we will never be a strong team in Denmark but IV.series would be nice someday. Today the economy is very good. The promotion before this season was the first in 15 seasons. The all-time stats record was broken last season after almost standing for five years. The training plans are follow as planned and development of the team comes before individuals and short term success. Rahman’s way to U20 is the outcome of this strategy and it is the present and the future of MSO. In addition to the training program and development talks between the club and U20, Røjkjær transferred to MSO last season and another approval of our new strategy. Also it is both our way to say thanks for noticing our talent and to help Denmark to set the strongest squad possible. Unthinkable situation two years ago and another outcome of a strong strategy for MSO.

What is next?
This season is all about Rahman and Røjkjær representing Denmark. It is a milestone and a motivation to continue what we are doing. Flamskär, Klokmose, Schwaner, Coling and Hestehauge is the next pool of talents from the academy promoting this season. Not on the level as Rahman, but strong enough to make a wider, stronger and flexible squad of homegrown players to keep pushing the limit for how strong MSO can get, both with the homegrown players but also compared to our entire history. A reasonable aim for the future and more realistic than dreams, ideas and hopes from the past.
