Unrest in Egypt has prompted Al-Ahly captain, Hussam Ghaly, to sign a one-season contract with the Belgian Lierce FC on Tuesday, Egypt News reported.
The 31-year-old Ghaly will receive $781 thousands for playing one season for Lierce FC. The contract, however, could be extended if both parties wanted.
Ghaly, who plays mainly as a central midfielder, joined the English football club Tottenham Hotspur from 2006-09 and New Zealand’s Feynoord from 2003-06.
He also played 43 international matches for Egypt.
