Salah Rico: I’ll join Zamalek next season
Ittihad El-Shorta midfielder Salah Atef ‘Rico’ has confirmed that he’ll be joining Zamalek starting from the next;season.
In television comments made to ONTV channel, Rico said that he met with Zamalek’s chairman, Mortada Mansour, and reached an agreement on all details concerning the deal.
“Zamalek’s board wanted to sign me in January, but Ittihad El-Shorta’s board decided to keep me until the end of the season instead,” the 26-year-old said.
“This is the last season for me in El-Shorta shirt, and I’ll join Zamalek next season.”
Rico’s contract with Ittihad El-Shorta is set to expire in the summer of 2017. Nonetheless, Zamalek have tried to sign him up this transfer window in order to bolster their midfield, but weren’t able to strike a deal.
It’s worth noting that Salah Rico was rumored to have signed for Al Ahly before El-Shorta’s General Manager denied these claims and said he won’t move there.
The midfielder has scored 2 goals and provided 2 assists playing for Ittihad El-Shorta this season.
