Al Ahly are playing the Netherlands’ Ajax Amsterdam in the city of Al-Ain on Friday, which will be the last game for the longtime club hero Hossam Ghaly.

“I will go home after Ajax’s retirement game and I will be away from anything related to football,” the 36-year-old midfielder stated during the presser, decisively eliminating any possibility of him playing more games.

“I am waiting to see the great Ahly fans at the game,” Ghaly added.

Ghaly, who won three Egyptian league titles, two Egyptian Cup titles and two African Champions League titles with Ahly, also recalled memories of his successful journey in Europe with Feyenoord, Tottenham Hotspur, Derby County and Lierse, before settling down at his boyhood club in 2014.

“Ghaly deserves this well-organised ceremony. He is one of the club’s icons. I have known him since he was a little kid. He is one of the best to wear the Ahly jersey,” said Ahly coach Hossam El-Badry.
