Mohamed Zidan denies retirement, eyes Egypt recall
32-year-old Mohamed Zidan, who spent most of career playing in Denmark and Germany prior to a brief spell in the Emirates with Baniyas, is looking to return to the Bundesliga or Danish Superliga next season.
In his latest interview, Zidan said that he has not received any offers from Egyptian clubs and that it would be an honour for him to play for Al Ahly or Zamalek.
When asked on his relationship with Mido, he said: “My relationship with Mido very good and I predict a bright future on the field as I do not mind training under him, especially since Mido would give me useful guidance in the game from his experience.”
Zidan hasn’t ended hopes of playing for the Egyptian national team again, claiming he still has a lot to give; and by joining a club and playing regular football it would ensure his return to the Pharaohs.
The former Mainz, Werder Bremen, Hamburg and Borussia Dortmund striker was sentenced to six years in prison last year before the case, which he labelled as a misunderstanding, was resolved days later.
