Sayed Asim Hassan (born 28 November 1979 in Malerkotla, Punjab[2]) is an Indian football player who plays as a Midfielder for I-League 2nd Division team ONGC F.C..[3]

Career[edit]

Mahilpur FA[edit]

He joined the Mahilpur Football Academy in the Under-19 batch and honed his game there for around three years. Mahilpur is another little known football crazy outpost, a city which is crazy about the game. It has produced stalwarts of Indian football.

JCT FC[edit]

The next logical step for any budding footballer in Punjab was the JCT Academy and it was no different for the midfielder. He graduated out of the Academy a couple of years later and joined the JCT senior team for 2007–08 I-League. His one year at JCT was not completely satisfactory mainly due to the lack of game time he got.

Pune[edit]

In the 2008 season, Asim joined Pune FC where it can be said that his pro career really began. Hassan is a recessed midfielder at Pune FC but he can see the larger picture which makes him, in some respects, a playmaker. He has an appetite for taking the game in to opposing off where his shooting skills can make him dangerous. His biggest moment in the game came during a crucial Pune FC match against SESA F.A. in a 2009 I-League 2nd Division encounter back in 2008-09. While it was not a tough match, in terms of strength of opposition, but Pune FC needed a win which they got. Asim missed most of the previous season with an injury. He has high hopes of the upcoming season and is looking to make a fresh start.[4]

Personal life[edit]

Apart from the game, Hassan favours Punjabi pop artistes, Jazzy B and Babbu Mann. He also surfs the net.
