OFFICIAL: Ahmed Tawfik renews Zamalek contract

Shakhtar Donetsk

On Tuesday the 18th of November, announced the renewal of ’s contract for four years.

An announcement was made official after an agreement had been reached between the Whites’ board of directors and the player – whose contract expired at the end of the season – for the latter to stay at the club for four more years starting the 2015/2016 season.

The renewal comes as a surprise as Tawfik, along with Omar Gaber, were under much criticism and heat from the board, especially from Zamalek president Mortada Mansour.

The president also verbally attacked both players following the club’s Super Cup defeat against Al Ahly earlier this season, saying “who are they?” in an intent to show that they are not good enough to play for Zamalek, while also demanding from then manager Hossam Hassan to drop them.

Tawfik has been linked to a move to Europe for several years, with Maritimo rumoured to be interested in the player, as well as previous more intense links with Ukrainian giants Shakhtar Donetsk.
