EXCLUSIVE: Ex-Boro midfielder Mohamed Shawky joins Malaysian giants Kelantan

Ex- and international will be plying his trade in Malaysia for the 2014 M-League season after joining giants Kelantan on Tuesday.

32-year-old Shawky, who has 68 caps for Egypt, was unveiled as one of the Red Warriors’ eight new signings under new head coach Steve Darby on Tuesday afternoon.

The former Al Ahly and Middlesbrough central defensive midfielder’s most memorable moment for Egyptian fans was likely when he scored for the national team against Brazil during the 2009 Confederations Cup, but the Seleção went on to win the game 4-3 after a late Kaká penalty.

Shawky had a brief stint in Turkey with Kayserispor in 2010 before returning to Egypt with Al Ahly – who later released him before he travelled to join Iraqi club Al-Naft.

Former Al Ahly striking duo Mohamed Ghaddar (Lebanon) and Francis Forkey Doe (Liberia) have also joined Shawky’s side after 18 players left the east coast state last season.

Ghaddar rejoined Kelantan following a disappointing season with Felda United. The Lebanese international, who had a nightmare with Al Ahly, was an undisputed star for the Red Warriors in the 2012 season. He scored 21 goals to help Kelantan achieve the treble – Super League, FA Cup and Malaysia Cup – while also netting seven goals in their AFC Cup campaign.

Steve Darby was revealed to be Kelantan’s new head coach last week, replacing Bojan Hodak, and he has signed a two-year deal with the club.
