Ghana defender Rashid Sumaila has been handed the number 37 shirt at Red Star Belgrade.

Sumaila who joined the Serbian side last week was unveiled today at the club’s office.

The Ghanaian completed his move to the former European champions after signing a one-year deal. He joined them from Kuwaiti side Al Qadsia.

Red Star Belgrade wanted to purchase the Ghana international on a permanent deal but the Yellow Castle were reluctant to sell the defender outright.

The defender became a top target for the ambitious Serbian side following the departure of his compatriot centre-back Abraham Frimpong who left the club to join Hungarian giants Ferencvaros.

The big icing on the cake for the rugged guardsman is that he will get the chance of playing in the UEFA Champions League.

He played last season in Qatar with Al Gharafa also on loan.
