Obama, a product of Zamalek’s youth team, was promoted to the first team in 2014 before joining Ittihad of Alexandria in 2015 on a season-long loan. Despite his impressive performances during his loan spell with the Alexandria-based club, he was loaned again to Wadi Degla.

He scored two goals in 14 appearances with Degla in the 2016/17 campaign, which saw them finish 12th in the league table with 38 points.

Former Ittihad of Alexandria coach Leonel Pontes has recently praised Obama, saying he has good potential. “He is a creative player who can play as an attacking midfielder, on the wings and can also take part in advanced counterattacks.”

He, however, described Obama as an emotional player and said that he needs to improve his decision-making abilities.
