Earlier on Monday, Zidan reiterated his frustration by the lack of first team football at Dortmund as he eyes a quick exit from Signal Iduna Park.
“Since my injury (in April 2010), I have never got a chance. Therefore I would like to leave in January rather than wait until the summer,” Zidan, whose contract ends in June, was quoted by ruhrnachrichten.
“I have no intention of spending six more months on the bench.”
Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc responded to Zidan’s comments conceding that the Egyptian is ‘understandably unhappy’ and that the situation will be assessed soon.
