Zak is Back: Amr Zaki rejoins ENPPI

Posted on February 15, 2013

Former Zamalek and Wigan hitman re-signs for Egyptian club for two and a half years on a free transfer, the player announced.

Egypt international Amr Zaki, 29, rejoins ENPPI on free transfer with a deal that will keep him at the Petroleum club until June 2015, after terminating his contract with Turkish club  this winter.

Zaki had an unsuccessful spell in Turkey with Elazığspor, failing to score in 8 matches since his move in the summer.

The former Zamalek star was denied a return to the Whites by club chairman Mamdouh Abbas, due to the bulldozer’s heavy wages.

The Egypt international claimed to have other offers from Russia, Championship side Blackpool and was even spotted in Iraq to conclude negotiations with Iraqi Premier League side Zakho until ending speculation by returning home to rejoin ENPPI.

Zaki was undoubtedly one of Egypt’s top strikers, especially when the El-Mansoura graduate was at the peak of his career on loan to Wigan Athletic in 2008, where he was the top goalscorer for a large portion of the season with 10 goals.

Like many Egyptians abroad, professionalism was a major issue for Zaki, with the Egyptian striker failing to return back from international duty to Wigan on numerous occasions, leading to the fall of the Bulldozer.

Zaki guided ENPPI to the 2005 Egypt Cup title during his two years at the club, before moving to Zamalek in 2006 following a short stint with Lokomotiv Moscow in Russia.
