Former Ismaily midfielder Homos announces retirement
Former Ismaily and Wadi Degla midfielder Mohamed Homos has announced his retirement from football at the age of 36.
The Egyptian midfielder officially decided to call time on his career after failing to return to his boyhood club Ismaily.
Homos spent 16 seasons with the Dervishes before joining Wadi Degla on a one-year deal during the 2014 summer transfer window. The 36-year-old decided to hang up his boots after failing to reach an agreement with Ismaily board to rejoin the club.
The veteran midfielder has previously stated that he want to end his career at Ismaily and that he will retire from football incase he failed to rejoin the Yellow Dragons.
The former Ismaily star is best remembered for his goal against Italy in Egypt’s second game in the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup. His only international goal gave the Pharaohs a historic 1-0 win over the reigning world champions.
Homos was also part of Ismaily’s squad that won the Egyptian Premier League in the 2001/02 season and Egypt Cup in 1997 and 2000, making it a golden era for the Ismailia-based club.
