Ghanaian forward Malik Abubakari has completed a loan move to Slovakian side Slovan Bratislava.
The 22 year old will feature for the Slovakian club until the end of the 2023 calendar year.
He joins the Brazilian from Swedish side Malmo FF.
The club confirmed his arrival in a statement on their website.
“Malik Abubakari arrives from the Swedish club Malmö FF on loan until the end of the calendar year 2023 with an option for a permanent transfer.
The Ghanaian striker, still only 22 years old, visited HJK Helsinki in the autumn, with whom he enjoyed the championship title. In addition, Abubakari scored HJK’s advancing goal in the rematch of the Europa League play-offs at Silkeborg, when he shocked the opponent’s goalkeeper with a truly unusual goal from just outside the half of the field. In the Europa League group, where HJK faced AS Roma, Real Betis and Ludogorca Razgrad, he started in five of the six games.
Our new acquisition at the tip of the attack was also starting his European journey in Portugal, specifically in Moreirense. From there he guested at the Portuguese clubs Fafe and Casa Pia. In the 2020/21 season, he scored 11 goals for Casa Pia in the second Portuguese league, and was tied for fifth in the scorers list. In the summer of 2021, he was acquired by Malmö as the reigning Swedish champion. In 2021, he scored 15 starts and 3 goals in Malmö, he added another 4 starts in the Champions League group.
He has a share in the championship title from 2021 and in winning the Swedish Cup 2021/22.”
Malik Abubakari becomes the second Ghanaian to join the side following the arrival of Zuberu Sharani.
