OFFICIAL: El-Gouna announce signing of Kareem Salem
Newly promoted side El-Gouna have announced the signing of young left-back Kareem Salem from Albuquerque Sol F.C.
Salem started playing for his university in the United States, before joining Albuquerque Sol F.C, who compete in the Premier Development League [the fourth tier of the American soccer pyramid].
He also represented Arab Contractors and El-Entag El-Harby at the youth levels, before moving to the US.
The player, who has represented Egypt previously at the U-17 level, has put pen to paper on a five-year contract, becoming the club’s latest signing.
Salem will have a fight on his hands to earn a starting spot, especially after the arrival of Cameroon international defender Jonathan Ngwem last week.
El-Gouna were promoted to Egyptian Premier League for the first time in three years, with next season being their fifth in the top tier.
Their opening league game of the season will be against Port-said based club Al Masry.
