Legendary goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary close to retirement
As per his agent Mohamed Sheha, Egypt’s legendary goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary will end another chapter of his career as he is close to announcing his retirement from football.
After 159 international caps with Egypt, Essam El-Hadary hung up his boots with the national team following a career full of achievements, which included winning the African Cup of Nations four times in 1998, 2006, 2008 and 2010.
He is currently playing for Ismaily which he joined on a free transfer for one year after he left Saudi Arabian side Al Taawoun.
