Munaf Ramadan (Arabic: مناف رمضان‎) is a retired professional Syrian football Striker who last played for Jableh in the Syrian Premier League.

Career[edit]

Club[edit]

Ramadan started his career at a young age with Saraqib and Al-Hurriya, then he transferred to Jableh where his first tournament was the 1988 Arab Club Champions Cup scoring his first goals against Al-Shabab, Al-Wehdat and Al-Rasheed.

Ramadan won the Syrian Premier League twice with Jableh in 1988 and 1989. Afterwards, he went to play in Kuwait for Al-Yarmouk and Al-Jahra. According to Ramadan, he had the opportunity to transfer to Anorthosis to participate in the 1995–96 UEFA Champions League qualifications, but a problem with his contract in Kuwait prevented him from making the move.

Back to Jableh, Ramadan won his third Syrian League in 2000, ending his career in 2002.[1]

International[edit]

Ramadan was called to play for Syria in 1988 AFC Asian Cup, and Syria U20 in 1989 FIFA World Youth Championship and 1991 FIFA World Youth Championship in which he scored against Uruguay U20 and England U20, only losing on penalties to Australia U20 in the Quarter-finals.
