Rizk said toFilGoal.com: “Smouha called me and his officials confirmed that the team needed me, especially after knowing that I was close to moving to the Arab Contractors for free.”
“They stressed to me that coach Ahmed Sami wanted me, he spoke about me well and said he wanted a midfield player who could keep the ball. Sami dealt with me in advance in the vanguards of the army and he knows me well and trusts me. The club officials asked about me Ahmed Naji and Hani Al-Ajizi (Sami’s assistant) as well. And they talked well. “
“We were running out of time, and after a phone call, there was no time to travel to Alexandria to meet with the administration. The club sent its delegate to the Football Association on the last day of registration, and I actually signed the contract.”
And he added, “I traveled afterwards to Alexandria and met Farag Amer (the president of Smouha), who welcomed me and stressed to me that he wished to keep me safe after I left Al-Ahly (in 2016), but at that time the army vanguards held on to me.
The 33-year-old midfielder concluded, “I hope to add something to Smouha. The team includes distinguished players, and I hope they will help them enter the semi-finals of the league.”
Smouha is the sixth team in Rizk’s journey that was assigned by the Arab Contractors in 2012 from the sun.
After his good appearance with the wolves, Al-Ahly delegated him in 2014, and after a season, he loaned him to the Vanguard of the Army for a year.
Then he finally moved to the army in 2016, and in January 2020 he landed on loan to Aswan for a half-season.
Rizk participated in 178 matches of the Egyptian Premier League, scored 14 goals and sent 28 assists.
The player is the third winter deal for the Alexandrian club, who borrowed Mustafa Fathi from Zamalek and contracted for free with Mr. Arafa, the former Enppi player.
Smouha is ranked ninth in the league standings, with a score of 12 points.
The Blue Wave will be a guest to Ismaily on Tuesday in the 11th round of the league.
