Hossam Hassan joins Arsenal

No, not THAT Arsenal.

He signed a one year deal. Financial details undisclosed.

his twin Ibrahim was opposed to the move, regarding it as degrading to Hossam's illustrious playing career.

The veteran striker, who scored the all important goal against Algeria in 1989 to seal Egypt's passage to the Italia finals, will wear the #9 jersey and has been handed the captain's armband.

How old is Hossam Hassam now?

Great player, we loved him here in Greece during his PAOK days along with his brother and Magdi Tolba... If only they would be fit to play during Rhamazan...

Love is the drug, and I'm a junkie.

Misleading ?! He DID join Arsenal. FYI, there are two more Arsenals that I know of, one in Argentina and the other in Lesotho. p There could be more, I don't know.

Heh, I can just imagine had he joined the London based club. "Cesc, son, could you please pass the ball to me ? there's a lollipop in it for you."

Didn't know that..

Mohamed Farouk, an Egyptian striker who had a short spell in Turkey, refused not to fast inspite of his coach's orders. Farouk's effort in training was affected by fasting hence the coach's request. So as a consequence, he returned to Egypt. There's another similar story I recall. Ismaily (one of the top Egyptian sides) were playing in the second leg of the CAF Champions League semi-final in 2003, away to Tunisia's Esperance Sportive Tunis.

Esperance lost the first leg in Egypt by three goals to one. The second leg was scheduled to be played during the holy month of Ramadan. So guess what, Esperance decide to play the game prior to sunset, as to take full advantage of the situation (fasting). Ismaily's players insisted on fasting during match, they won 3-1 (6-2 on agg.) and progressed to the final. In 2001, Al Ahly (The Hassan twins & Tolba's ex-club) were faced with an identical situation, this time in the final of the CAF Champions League. The first leg at Pretoria, South Africa was played in the afternoon yet our players fasted. Match ended 1-1, Ahly won the return leg 3-0 in Cairo to lift the trophy.
