OFFICIAL: Momen Zakaria signs Al Ahly contract extension until 2022


Al Ahly winger has extended his contract with the Cairo giants which will keep him at the club until 2022.

The 30-year-old has been with the Reds since January 2015, after spells at Entag El-Harby, Al Masry, ENPPI, and Zamalek. He also spent the second half of last season on loan at Al Ahli Jeddah.

Zakaria is a product of Al Ahly youth sector and has made over 130 appearances for them, scoring 39 goals while providing 20 assists.

During his time at the club, he has won the league title three times, two Super Cup, and one Egypt Cup as well as reaching the CAF Champions League final twice.

His contract was due to run at the end of this season, but after long negotiations, Momen has agreed to extend his contract until 2022.

Zakaria’s new deal comes after Al Ahly have announced the signing of Egypt international Mohamed Mahmoud from Wadi Degla on Saturday.

Momen has made only four outings for Al Ahly this season, but is yet to score or assist, and he wasn’t also registered in the club’s preliminary CAF Champions League squad.

On the international level, Momen Zakaria has represented Egypt 12 times, and was part of the team that qualified for the 2018 World Cup, but his last appearance came against Greece in March 2017.
