Armando Returns To The Gulf
Listen to article

Ghanaian international, Baba Armando Adams never seems to settle with a particular club.
The former Asante Kotoko star has made a return to United Arab Emirates to join Al Asr from Belarus club, FC Dinamo Minsk.
The terms of Baba Armando's latest move to Al-Asr still remain unknown but it is believed that the attacker is on loan for the remaining season in the Gulf region.
Armando who was released by his Russian club, FC Lokomotiv Moskva early last year secured a six-month loan deal to join FC Dinamo Minsk in the Belarus league.
During his time at FC Dinamo Minsk, he played regularly though Minsk failed to win the Belarusian Premier League. They settled for the third position.
Armando who featured in some European Champions League matches for Lokomotiv Moskva in the 2002/3 seasons was released last year by the Russian club because he always watched from the sidelines and failed to fit into first the team.
He started his Ghanaian premiership career with relegated Swedru All Blacks where he played for a season before he was transferred to Al-Shabab in the United Arab Emirates.
Kumasi Asante Kotoko expressed interest in the skilful left-footed player and signed him on loan from the UAE club.
After completion of the season with Asante Kotoko, Baba Armando reverted to his Al-Shabab club before he signed for Lokomotiv Moskva in Russia. He has had some international stints with the Black Stars during his short period on the scene.
Armando seems to have made a quick return preferably to round up his career or continue with his aim of staging a comeback to Europe
