Mido: Ibrahim Said to Zamalek? ‘No comment’
Former Egyptian international defender Ibrahim Said met with Zamalek president Mortada Mansour on Monday, to discuss the possibility of a return to Meet Okba.
The former Ahly and Zamalek player proposed to the outspoken Whites president Mortada Mansour that he would sign a one-year contract and play free of charge.
34-year-old Said has struggled to settle down with clubs ever since he was part of Hassan Shehata’s 2006 African Cup of Nations winning squad, having stints with Ismaily, Ittihad of Alexandria and even abroad in Turkey and Switzerland.
The former Everton centre-back Said has been without a club since he was released by Assyriska in 2013.
When Zamalek coach Mido was asked about Said’s possible return, following a friendly match against Entag El-Harby, the former Ajax man paused for a moment, before replying with: “No comment.”
It’s also worth noting that this isn’t the first player Mortada Mansour has approached without Mido’s approval, as the 31-year-old manager has gone on record saying that he’s not interested in Ayman Hefny, who reportedly agreed terms with the Whites, as the player “does not suit Zamalek’s style of play.”
