Mostafa Fathi signs new Zamalek contract until 2022
Zamalek winger Mostafa Fathi has signed a new four-year contract extension to keep him at the White Castle until 2022.
The 24-year-old was linked with a move to Pyramids FC after chairman Al-Sheikh announced that Zamalek duo Ahmed El-Shennawy and Mostafa Fathi will join his club, before the Whites’ president Mortada Mansour confirmed the news.
However, Mostafa Fathi has denied that he has agreed to move the newly renovated club, and today he has committed to Zamalek for the next four years, the Whites have announced.
He will stay at the club until 2022, hoping to become a key part of Christian Gross’ plans next season and help Zamalek win more trophies.
Fathi has joined Zamalek in 2013 from Nabaroh and has made 120 appearances for them, scoring 22 goals and assisting further 12.
He spent last season on loan at Saudi side Al Taawoun, but injuries hampered his time with the club, forcing him to make only 10 appearances.
During his time at the Whites, Fathi helped the club win one league title, three Egypt Cups, and one Egypt Super Cup, as well as guiding them to the CAF Champions League final in 2016.
On the international level, Mostafa has been capped eight times by the Pharaohs, making his international debut against Tanzania in 2015.
He was part of the Egypt team that reached the 2018 World Cup but didn’t make the final squad due to an injury.
