Gabri to Umm-Salal

Ajax and Umm-Salal have reached an agreement for the transfer of Gabri to the Qatar club. The Spanish midfielder leaves Ajax effective immediately.

Gabri (Gabriel García de la Torre) was born on February 10, 1979. He came to Ajax from FC Barcelona during the summer of 2006. He played a total of 118 matches for Ajax’s first team, and scored 10 times. Gabri won the KNVB Cup with Ajax twice, in 2007 and 2010.

Says Gabri: “ I’ve had a fantastic time with Ajax. Ajax is a warm club, and I enjoyed living in Amsterdam. The supporters have always been behind me, and I will definitely come back to say a proper goodbye to everyone. I wouldn’t rule out coming back to Ajax as a youth coach, or in another role.”
