    It would be the most stupid choice if he chose Al Ahli Jeddah. It’s a weak competition adding nothing to his cv. Furthermore i wouldn’t trust that boss of their football association, Turki Al Sheikh, with Egyptian players following the earlier incidents of that guy in Egypt.

      Hosam, it doesn’t have anything to do with Turki,there are quite a few Egyptian players in Saudi and they dont have issues. Hegazi should stay in England because he is good enough to be a starter for a top 10 club there, so why go to a lesser league?
