Egyptian defender Mahmoud Fathalla has returned to Egypt and has joined Arab Contractors on a free transfer.

The move follows his departure from the Lebanese side Al-Nejmeh after his contract expired in December in 2016.

KingFut reports that the former Zamalek defender has reportedly agreed to sign for Contractors as the club's sports director stated on a televised show.

Fathalla played for a year in Lebanon, scoring one consolation goal for his side in their 5-1 defeat in the Beirut derby against Al Ansar.

The ex-Pharaohs international represented the White Knights for seven seasons, but left in 2014 after playing for Tala’a El Geish for a year and Entag El Harby for two seasons.

Furthermore, the veteran defender has also featured in two CAF African Cup of Nations tournaments in 2008 and 2010, winning the tournament on both occasions.

The 35-year-old centre back expressed delight based on his stay in Lebanon, saying he wishes everyone the best of luck.

“It was a great experience and I’m very happy to have met some amazing and decent characters, I wish everyone the best of luck.”
