Youssef Obama rejoins Zamalek, his Feirense move is off
Youssef Obama has rejoined Zamalek on a four-year contract after being close to completing a move to Portuguese side C.D. Feirense.
The 22-year-old attacking midfielder was close to signing a two-year deal with CD Feirense after the end of his loan spell at Wadi Degla before deciding to rejoin the White Castle.
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.
