Gamal Hamza joins Amir Azmy in Georgia with move to Zugdidi
Former Egypt international striker Gamal Hamza has completed his move to Georgian side FC Zugdidi, joining former Zamalek team-mate Amir Azmy Megahed. Gamal Hamza becomes the second Egyptian to join FC Zugdidi, who are currently 5th in the Umaglesi Liga, as the Georgian side recently signed defender Amir Azmy Megahed. This is not Hamza’s first spell in Europe, having previously moved to Bundesliga side Mainz in 2009. However, having not featured in a competitive fixture for the German side, the 31-year-old will be looking to make a new name for himself on the European stage. Hamza will be hoping for a change in fortunes with his latest move, having had an unsuccessful stint in Iraq with Al-Sina’a which was cut short to only two months. “I made my move to Georgia after my ending my spell in Iraq, which was not successful due to many reasons,” Hamza told Yallakora.
The former Egyptian international aims to get back in-form to warrant a re-call to Bob Bradley’s side: “A re-call to the national team is what I am aiming for right now, and I hope my move to Zugdidi is the gateway that.” Former Zamalek centre-back Megahed, who spent the majority of his career abroad in Greece, Cyprus, Turkey and Saudi Arabia before returning to Egypt last season with Misr El-Maqassa, reportedly recommended Hamza to Zugdidi manager Klimenti Tsitaishvili.
