Zamalek’s Obama extends Ittihad loan
Zamalek striker Youssef Ibrahim ‘Obama’ has extended his loan at Ittihad of Alexandria for another season.
The 21-year-old spent the 2015/16 season at Ittihad, where he scored seven goals in 31 games to become the club’s top scorer.
Ittihad’s director of football Walid Salah El-Din confirmed in April that he agreed with Zamalek chairman Mortada Mansour over extending the striker’s loan period.
The Zamalek loanee signed the contracts that will keep him in Alexandria for a further season, putting an end to speculations linking him with a return to his parent club after impressing during his one-year loan at the Alexandria-based club.
Obama, a product of Zamalek’s youth team, was promoted to the first team in 2014 by the then club manager Ahmed Hossam Mido.
