“I wish the team success in the upcoming period by winning the CAF Champions League and qualifying for the Club World Cup.

The 32-year-old Egypt international will be joining the Finnish side until the FIFA World Cup in order to remain fit to feature for the Pharaohs in Russia next June.

He joins Al Ahly loanee Amr Gamal, who completed his move to HJK Helsinki in the Finnish league earlier this month on loan.

The 2018 season just kicked-off a few days ago in Finland. KuPS have drawn their first match in the league against FC Honka.

It is worth noting that the playmaker is set to join Saudi club Al Ahli Jeddah after the conclusion of the World Cup after it was confirmed by their president.
