BEEN AT MILLWALL SINCE: July 3rd, 2008

 

Nadjim Abdou, or "Jimmy" as he is known to fans signed a one year contract extension last summer to see his time at The Den through to his testimonial year. Having signed from Plymouth in 2008, this summer will mark the tenth year of Abdou being at Millwall, and he is sure to get a great reception.

 

For me, in particular, he'll go down as a Lions legend. Whilst not being the most technically gifted player, he wasn't afraid to put his body on the line or give everything for the cause, and would run far more than most players on the pitch game after game. Under his former teammate Neil Harris, Abdou found getting first team football more difficult in League One, but came into the side towards the end of the season in both 2015/16 and 2016/17. His knowhow and experience will have helped some of the younger players no end, with that never say die attitude always shining through. He started his fourth play-off final for the club in May, and will forever be remembered for THAT goal at Elland Road in the play-off semi finals (2009).
