Damion Lowe’s footballing journey has been nomadic. The former Camperdown standout, who started his professional career in the United States, also enjoyed successful spells in Norway and most recently Egypt. With that said, the Reggae Boyz self-proclaimed Minister of Defense has unfinished business with Uncle Sam.
Following a two-year stint in Alexandria, Egypt, Lowe has returned to the United States, this time with David Beckham’s Inter Miami.
It’s a big deal for Lowe, who joins the likes of players who have graced the world’s greatest football clubs, most notably Blaise Matuidi and Gonzalo Higuain. It’s another opportunity for the defender to test his skills in an increasingly popular league as well as to pave the way for other Jamaican players who are seeking similar opportunities.
“It’s always good to be a part of an organization with world class experts and players. I’m very excited because being here will help me to grow so much as a player,” he told 876Stream.
Lowe has always been one of the national team’s best players since he made his debut, earning his first cap in 2016.
His focus right now is primarily to make an impact in Miami. Despite playing for Seattle Sounders in the past, he never made a debut for the first team in the MLS but was instead loaned out to the club’s second team in the USL. This still lingers on his mind.
“Personally, I see this as unfinished business. I can finally make my debut which was hindered due to injuries and loan moves,” he confessed.
“Teamwise, I look forward to performing at the highest level every week, winning titles and becoming one of the best teams in the league.”
Lowe’s contract with Al Ittihad was supposedly terminated by mutual consent and rumors were circulated stating that the Jamaican had a falling out with the coaching staff. However, the 28-year-old simply stated that it was just time to venture into a new path and his time in Egypt had come to an end with no regrets.
“I don’t typically regret my decisions in life. If I decide on something it’s because it was the best-case scenario for me and my family at the time. I’ve learned a lot, and I’m always grateful.”
Lowe’s time with Inter Miami will be watched closely, mostly by his admirers who would hope that he will be able to become an integral part of the squad. As the new season draws nearer to a start, he is eager to get the opportunity to prove that he is capable of holding his own.
When it comes to where he sees his career ending, Lowe has a burning desire to play in Europe again. More specifically, Lowe is still intent on adding England as a destination to add to his heavily-stamped football passport.
“I’ll take this day by day. As an athlete with a family, stability is important. I still have aspirations to play in England.”
Damion Lowe has created a name for himself over the last decade and has garnered almost a half century of caps for his country. He is heavily regarded as the best Jamaican defender of his generation.
