Muhannad Naim (born 28 January 1993) is a Qatari born-Palestinian footballer who currently plays for Muaither as a goalkeeper. He also currently plays for the Qatar U-21 national team as their first choice goalkeeper, and he also plays for the Qatar Olympic (U-23) team.


Muhannad Naim first started playing football at the age of eight.[1] He played in Al Khor's youth team as a teenager, but later joined Al Sadd's senior team in 2009 in what was supposed to be a temporary loan.[2]

He participated in the ASPIRE U-19 tournament held in Doha in April 2012. Qatar won the tournament, only conceding a single goal, resulting in Naim winning the "Best Goalkeeper of the Tournament" award.[3]

In January 2013, he had undergone a training period in German club Schalke 04 in the interim of their training camp being held in Doha. Additionally, he played in a friendly for Al Sadd against Schalke, narrowly losing 2–3. Later that month, he was sent on loan to ASPIRE-owned Belgian 2nd Division club Eupen until the end of the season.[4] He made 2 appearances for the club before returning to Al Sadd.

Personal life[edit]

Naim was born in Saudi Arabia to Palestinian parents, and moved to Qatar at a young age. He is a youth international for Qatar.[5]
