The 32-year old had an unforgettable stint with the Omdurman outfit between 2010 and 2013. A fans favourite, he was pivotal as Hilal reached the semis of the CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup in 2011 and 2012.
Sadomba, who has signed an 18-month contract with Hilal talked to CAFOnline.com on his return to Sudan, ambitions etc. Below are excerpts;
Cafonline.com: Back to Al Hilal, what does it mean to you?
Edward Sadomba: I thank God because it’s a great opportunity to achieve what I could not on my previous stint.
Did you ever ponder over a return to the club?
A big Yes! It’s a great club with ambitions and many fans. Hilal is a club that pushes you to do more and more because expectations are high.
What are your fondest memories of the Omdurman derby?
The build-up to the game and the tensed atmosphere between rival supporters was always amazing. But it is very friendly. Hilal is a big family.
You scored in your first match, incidentally in the derby against El Merreikh. What was the motivation?
I’m motivated when it comes to derbies. The atmosphere is superb. I’m grateful to God I created the first goal and scored the winner.
How far do you want to go with Hilal this time?
To reach the final of the CAF Champions League next year God willing. Most of the experienced players are still around so it won’t be difficult for me to adjust.
Have you noticed any difference at Hilal compared to your first stint three years ago?
There have been great developments; for example the renovation of the stadium.
Outside the field, I don’t have any challenges. On the pitch, the challenge is to win every match, one after the other.
