Official: Amr Zaki signs for Club World Cup runners up Raja Casablanca

Amr Zaki signs for Raja

Former Wigan hitman signs for Club World Cup runners up  on a free transfer, the Moroccan club’s official website announced. 

As reported earlier this week, Amr Zaki, 30, flew to Morocco on Wednesday and officially signed for Raja Casablanca today on a one-and-a-half-year deal, the club’s official website announced.

The Bulldozer’s deal with the Moroccan champions – which expires in June 2015 – is worth $300,000, according to Morocco newspaper Al-Montakhab.

Zaki also confirmed the transfer: “Delighted to sign for the great #RCA until June 2015,” the former Zamalek and Wigan hitman tweeted.

It is worth noting Raja Casablanca are only the second African club to reach the final of the FIFA Club World Cup – where they lost 2-0 to Bayern Munich a fortnight ago.

Amr Zaki was released by Al-Salmiya last month by mutual consent, despite only joining the Kuwaiti side in the summer.

Zaki had an unsuccessful spell in Turkey with Elazığspor prior to joining Al-Salmiya, where he failed to score in eight matches before terminating his contract last winter.

The Mansoura graduate was at the peak of his career when he was on loan to Wigan Athletic in 2008, where he was the English Premier League top goalscorer for the first half of the season with 10 goals.

The Egypt international has recently showed signs of his former self, scoring two goals with Al-Salmiya, and two with the national team against Zambia and Ghana.
