Although Aziz Yakubu (25 years old) has a contract with Rio Ave of Portugal until next season, specifically the summer of 2025, the Portuguese club’s management decided to dispense with the player, so the Ghanaian striker left for the Japanese second division.

The Japanese club Shimizu S-Pulse announced the signing of Abdul Aziz Yaqoub without announcing the official contract period, as the Japanese club only announced the deal according to what was stated on the Japanese club’s platforms on social media.

Earlier, Antonio Silva Campos, president of the Portuguese club Rio Ave, expressed his astonishment at the failure of the transfer deal of Ghanaian Abdul Aziz Yakubu to Al-Ahly, and said, “Al-Ahly’s position was strange. Yakubu is in good health and does not suffer from any injuries, as he has not missed any match or training for the team this season.”

The president of the Portuguese club Rio Ave continued in his statements, Al-Ahly’s request was strange to include Yacoubou until the end of the season for free, after agreeing to sell the player for 2 and a half million dollars.


Yakubu did not miss any match for the Chinese or Portuguese teams due to injury, which raises question marks about Al-Ahly’s decision.

Aziz Yacoubou, 25, plays for the Portuguese team Rayo Ave. He holds Ghanaian citizenship and is good at playing as a striker.
