Adnan Farooq Ahmed (Urdu: ; born 7 June 1984) is a professional footballer who plays in the Hungarian top flight for Ferencvárosi TC. Ahmed is a British Asian of Pakistani descent. Because of his Pakistani parentage he was eligible to represent either England or Pakistan, at an international level, and eventually chose Pakistan.

Club career

Huddersfield Town

Initially part of Bury youth academy, as well as a two year stint at Manchester United Academy afterwards, Adnan chose to join Huddersfield Town where he turned professional.

Despite making a few appearances for the club in league and cup competitions since turning professional, Ahmed's career has been hampered by persistent injury troubles.

Ahmed has the unfortunate distinction of being the very first player to be sent off at the Keepmoat Stadiummarker, the new home of Doncaster Rovers. He was shown the red card for a two footed challenge on Rovers' Mark McCammon, the scorer of the very first goal in the stadium during Huddersfield's 3-0 defeat on 1 January 2007.

In January 2007, Ahmed went to Lincoln City, who had shown an interest in him, on a one week trial with Huddersfield manager Peter Jackson saying "It will be a good experience for him and will hopefully make him appreciate what he's got here". However, no deal was done between the clubs and as a result the player returned to Huddersfield.

On May 9, 2007, he was released from the club.

Tranmere Rovers

On 25 May 2007, it was announced that Adnan had joined Tranmere Rovers side on a free transfer, becoming manager Ronnie Moore's first summer signing of 2007. He made his debut coming on as a substitute in the 2nd half at home in a 1-1 draw with Yeovil Town on 1 September 2007. However, competition for places in midfield saw him make just five further appearances during his debut season with the club.

Because of lack any real first team opportunities, Adnan went on loan to Conference National side Mansfield Town at the end of October 2008, making his first team debut in a 2-0 defeat away to Torquay United on 1 November 2008. He became an instant hit with the Mansfield fans scoring a penalty in the 3-0 win against Salisbury City, also scoring a diving header against Weymouth to set up a 2-1 victory. Following his return to Tranmere, he joined Port Vale on trial. He went on loan to Vale on 21 January, 2009. Ahmed opened his account with the Valiants by scoring the match winner in a 2-0 win at Macclesfield Town on February 25, 2009. He returned to Tranmere in late March after Vale manager Dean Glover rejected the opportunity to extend his loan, despite impressing fans with his performances.

Ferencváros TC

In July 2009, having impressed coaching staff during pre-season trial matches at Hungarian team Ferencváros TC, Adnan Ahmed signed a two year deal with the team to play in Hungarian National Championship I. He played his first competitive game for the team in a 2-0 win over Diósgyőri VTK in the Hungarian League Cup on July 29, 2009.

International career

Adnan Ahmed received his first formal call up to the Pakistan national football team squad for their World Cup 2010 preliminaries against Iraq on 22 October 2007 in Lahoremarker, where he made his debut in a hefty 7-0 loss, and 28 October 2007 for the return leg in Aleppomarker, Syriamarker which surprisingly finished goal-less between the two sides, although Iraq went through the next round on aggregate scores. Adnan scored his first goal for Pakistan in a humiliating 7-1 loss against Sri Lanka in the 2008 AFC Challenge Cup qualifiers. Adnan took part in the 2008 SAFF Cup where he scored a goal against arch-rivals India in a disappointing 2-1 loss and ended Pakistan's chances of going past the group stage. Adnan scored 2 goals in 2010 AFC Challenge Cup against Taiwan 1-1 draw and against Brunei 6-0 but in end they finished as 2nd and could not qualify for 2010 AFC Challenge Cup.
