Ahmed Hassan mulling unretirement after Ismaily offer
Egyptian legend Ahmed Hassan is mulling coming out of retirement, citing an offer from boyhood club Ismaily.
The 40-year old, who most recently played for Zamalek, retired in November of 2013 before being appointed by former Egyptian national team coach Shawky Gharib as an assistant manager for the Pharaohs.
Ismaily manager Tarek Yehia is extremely interested in coaxing the midfielder out of retirement.
“Next year, it is important to have a veteran presence in the team, and no one is better in that role than Ahmed Hassan,” Yehia said.
The former Zamalek left back expressed satisfaction with the Dervishes’ current fifth-placed position in the Egyptian Premier League, which they hold despite a six-point penalty imposed on the club to begin the season.
Ahmed Hassan spent the first two years of his career at Aswan before moving to Ismaily. He then transferred to Turkey to begin a successful ten-year European career that also included a stint in Belgium, before returning to Egypt to play for Al Ahly and cross-town rivals Zamalek.
