Gamal Hamza signs for Al-Sina’a in Iraq
Former Egypt international Gamal Hamza signed a short 4-month deal with Iraqi side Al-Sina’a on Monday.
After months of speculation over Hamza’s future, the former Egyptian international put an end to the Egyptian rumor mill by signing for Al-Sina’a in Iraq. “Today I signed a 4-month deal with Al-Sina’a, I will join the team in training in the coming days to get fit for the official matches,” Hamza told Korabia.
Gamal Hamza becomes the third Egyptian to join the Iraqi league after former Middlesbrough defensive midfielder Mohamed Shawky and young Zamalek striker Ahmed Fathi ‘Bogy’.
Hamza was once considered one of Egypt’s top strikers netting 50 goals with Zamalek before terminating his contract in 2009.
The 31-year-old had a very short stint in Germany with Mainz, but never played in a league fixture before returning home to Egypt to join El-Gouna, where he showed glimpses of his old self.
The former Zamalek striker joined the White Knights’ fierce rivals Al-Ahly in 2010, only to have his contract cancelled after a few months, again without playing in a competitive fixture. He returned to Gouna the same year, where he scored three goals in six matches during the 2010-2011 season, but left the season after to join Tarek Yehia’s Misr El-Maqassa on loan.
Due to the uncertainty surrounding the future of the domestic league, Hamza cancelled his contract with Misr El-Maqassa by mutual consent.
