Abdallah El-Said bids farewell to Al Ahly fans following Finland move
El-Said’s loan move to Kuopion Palloseura was confirmed on Tuesday night, after the Red Devils transfer-listed him following the saga which saw him sign for the club’s eternal rivals Zamalek before going back to renew his contract with the Red Devils.
Abdallah El-Said spent seven years at Al Ahly, winning four Premier League titles, two CAF Champions Leagues, one Confederation Cup, one Egypt Cup, two CAF Super Cups, and two Egypt Super Cups.
He went on to make over 225 appearances for the Red Devils, scoring 67 goals while providing 54 assists.
“I want to say thanks to Al Ahly, the technical staff, and all the teammates for my time at the club,” El-Said posted on Twitter.
“I wish the team success in the upcoming period by winning the CAF Champions League and qualifying for the Club World Cup.
“I would like to thank the fans who supported me and all who criticised me in the last period. I hope god grant me good luck to meet the great Egyptian fans expectations,” he added.
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.
