Aboud Omar (born 9 September 1992) is a Kenyan professional footballer who plays as a defender for Belgian First Division A side Cercle Brugge and the Kenyan national team.


Born in Mombasa, Aboud Omar began his career at local side Admiral in the second tier of Kenyan football. In early 2011, he was loaned to Kenyan Premier League club Bandari.[1]

In June 2013, Omar joined Kenyan Premier League defending Champions Tusker where he won 2013 Kenyan Super Cup (post-season).[2]

After two years at Tusker, Omar signed with Greek club Panegialios in August 2015.[3] He made his debut in a 0–0 home draw against Acharnaikos on 27 September. Omar played half of the season, appearing 15 times in the league.

Slavia Sofia

On 9 February 2016, Omar signed a contract with Bulgarian side Slavia Sofia, after a successful trial period with the club.[4] He made his competitive debut against Botev Plovdiv on 3 March, playing the full 90 minutes.[5] As a result, he became the first Kenyan footballer to play in the Bulgarian top league.

On 30 June 2016, Omar marked his European debut with an assist for a Serder Serderov goal in a 1–0 home win against Zagłębie Lubin in their 2016–17 Europa League first qualifying round first leg tie.

On 20 April 2018, Omar was sacked by Slavia with immediate effect. In a statement, Slavia president Ventseslav Stefanov alleged that Omar had insulted his teammates and disrespected Bulgaria.[6] Omar said he wanted to refer the matter to FIFA.[7]

Cercle Brugge

On 15 June 2018, Omar signed with Belgian club Cercle Brugge.[8]
