OFFICIAL: Mahmoud Fathallah joins Lebanese side Al-Nejmeh


Former Egypt international has signed a one-year deal with Lebanese side Al-Nejmeh after his contract with Entag El-Harby expired.

The 35-year-old defender decided not to renew his contract with Entag El-Harby after two years with them. During his time with the military club, he scored 18 goals in 70 appearances across all competitions.

Fathallah arrived in Lebanon on Monday to negotiate a deal with the club’s officials before the veteran defender agreed to sign a one-year deal with the Lebanese side.

The former Zamalek player has reportedly snubbed offers from Petrojet, Ittihad of Alexandria, Assiouty Sport and Al-Rajaa to join Al-Nejmeh.

Al-Nejmeh finished third in the Lebanese Premier League last term and are the second most successful club in Lebanon, winning eight league titles, six FA Cups, six Super Cups and nine Elite Cups.

It’s worth noting that Mahmoud Fathallah spent seven seasons at Zamalek, scoring 25 goals in 191 appearances and won two Egyptian Cups with them. He also had a brief stint at Tala’a El-Gaish.

He has been capped 52 times by Egypt, winning two Africa Cup of Nations titles in 2008 and 2010, but his last international appearance came in 2013 against Zimbabwe in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.
