Al Ahly’s attacking midfielder Mostafa Mohamed Selim, more commonly known as ‘’ has signed for Azerbaijan Premier League side FK Qarabagh.

23-year-old Afroto (or Little Genie) joins Qarabagh on a free from Al Ahly as the Egyptian champions didn’t see him in their future plans and refused to extend his contract.

Afroto was on loan at Al Ittihad Al Sakandary (Union Alexandria) this season, but only managed to score a goal in 8 appearances prior to the season’s cancellation following the Port Said tragedy.

Afroto was regarded as one of the hottest upcoming prospects in Egyptian football after his impressive displays at the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Egypt, where he scored 2 superb goals before Egypt were eliminated in the Second Round by Costa Rica.

He later fell out with Al Ahly’s management over lack of playing time, especially after the return of Portuguese boss Manuel Jose, but played a total of 10 games for the Cairo giants, scoring and assisting twice.

    He deserves a chance. Still young and has expriance to gain great pace with his blistering Speed strong on the ball and powerful as well. I think with enough plying time and trust by his peers he can be back in the international picture again and may very well be singed to more fit club in the near future.

    he did the right think by leaving.. it’s probably going to be a hard mental test for him, but i hope he does well because he’s very talented!
