This will be the former Egypt international’s first official role as a club official since his retirement in 1994.

Abdelhamid is one of the best attacking midfielders to ever grace the football pitch in Egypt.

He kicked-off his career with Al Ahly in the mid-seventies and after sustaining a long-term injury he was let go by the Reds before joining arch-rivals Zamalek.


It was with the White Knights that the 63-year-old arguably reached the peak of his form.

He won nine trophies in his ten-year stint, including three Egyptian Premier League titles and three CAF Champions Leagues.

Abdelhamid is also the Egyptian Premier League’s eighth all-time goalscorer with 101 recorded goals.
