Al Ahly captain Hossam Ghaly has revealed that he is going to retire next season, adding that he will consider any Chinese offers.

The 35-year-old has been promoted to Al Ahly’s first team in 2000, winning two Egyptian Premier League, three Super cups, and four continental titles.

Ghaly has also played for number of European clubs, including Feyenoord Rotterdam, Tottenham Hotspur, Derby County, and Belgian side Lierse.

“I have decided that the next season will be my last one as a player. I am content with what I have done throughout my career since my promotion to Al Ahly’s first team in 2000,” Ghaly said.

“I haven’t received any offers from Chinese clubs, but in case of receiving one I will think seriously about it and I might accept it.

“China is attracting a lot of football’s star players after its clubs signed some World class players.

“I will consider any offers seriously if I received one,” he concluded.

The midfielder has made ten appearances for the Red Devils this season, providing one assist and helping his side topping the Egyptian Premier League with 45 points from 17 games.

It’s worth mentioning that Ghaly, who has 74 international appearances, has not been called up by Héctor Cúper for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
