Al-Ghandour explained that the decision came despite the approval of the coach, Jaime Pacheco, to contract with the former Al-Ahly player, but that it came “to preserve the club’s values and professionalism.”
The sheikh joined Al-Ahly in 2015, after signing for Zamalek while playing for Egypt for the clearing, before statements were issued that the Zamalek administration at the time saw that the sheikh attacked the club.
Zamalek’s decision comes despite the Sheikh’s signature on the contracts to join the club, as FilGoal.com learned from a source close to Ahmed Al-Sheikh hours before his contract with Zamalek, which came for a period of 3 years.
Ahmed El Sheikh welcomed playing for Zamalek, and Pacheco gave the green light to complete the deal.
A few days ago, the Sheikh crowned the African Champions League with Al-Ahly, before the Red Club announced that his name would not be included in the team’s list for the new season, and by extension he became a free player to sign with any team..
Ahmed Al-Sheikh joined Al-Ahly in 2015 from Egypt for the clearing, before returning to the 2016 Fayoumi team, then moving on to the Saudi agreement in 2018 and returning to continue with Al-Ahly until the end of the last season.
The 28-year-old participated last season in 30 matches in various tournaments. He scored 5 goals and scored three more.
The sheikh has the only international match with the Egyptian national team, in 2017 under the leadership of Hector Cuper against Togo, in which he scored a goal.
Ahmed El-Sheikh was crowned the top scorer award in the 2016/2017 season, with Egypt for clearing, with 17 goals.
