El Hadji Diouf Joins Shabab Al-Khader from Palestine

Former Senegal National Team star, El Hadji Diouf, has decided to come back to action for the last two months of the season, and this morning he announced his new destination.

Diouf, who lately played for Malaysian side Sabah FA, has declared that his decision was only because of the fact the offer came from an extremely exotic place - Shabab Al-Khader from the Palestinian League. In his exclusive talk with BabaGol, Diouf confessed: "It was my dream to join this specific mega Palestinian side, to qualify for the AFC Champions League, and to be featured in the emerging football blog - BabaGol. Especially in such a nice 1st of April morning". Guys wake up. Happy Fools Day fellas.

BabaStickers Around the World

BabaGol is one year old, and that's definitely a reason for a celebration. During this past year, Baba was sharing stories, photos and videos here on the blog, at the Facebook page and throughout Twitter.

One of the most fun things in being BabaGol, is sending our stickers to fans across the world. From here, to there. India, Pakistan, United Arab Emirates, Palestine, Israel, Georgia, Armenia, Ukraine, Greece, Spain, France, Germany, Finland, Brazil, Argentina and United States of America, are among the countries we remember we sent them stickers. Few envelopes didn't arrive eventually, but the "BabaSpirit" was there. To enjoy your football club. To enjoy your hometown or city. To celebrate the fact that the language of football, is the one who connects us, football fans around the globe, with no politics, religion, race or gender involved.

A big thank you is going to our friends Elna and Kobi. Each one of them designed a different sticker, both with a good taste, carefully fitted for the certain character of our blog.

With those stickers travelling the world, we have made the first step towards the multicultural home we had in mind. A place where everyone will feel related and connected. Every one. Enjoy the travels!
