Al Ahly goalkeeper Sherif Ekramy will part ways with the Egyptian giants at the end of the current season.
The 36-year-old shot-stopper, who has been on the books of the Red Devils since 2010, is one of the most decorated Egyptian keepers of all-time.
Ekramy is serving as Al Ahly’s second-choice goalkeeper behind Mohamed El Shenawy.
The former Egypt international released the following statement on his official Twitter page:
“23 years, they used to assume responsibility on the field, there is no joy in football than the fun of matches and participating in them bearing the Al-Ahly logo, and my goal during the last period was to try to return again to the pitch with hard effort and patience, waiting for a real opportunity, but day after day it becomes the most difficult reality. Eery detail regarding my next step will be announced clearly when I settle on it and in a timely manner, all my focus now is with my team to achieve a successful last season that satisfies the aspirations of our large fans and perform faithfully until my last day,” a statement read.
Ekramy had a spell with Dutch giants Feyenoord between 2005 and 2009.
بعد مشوار امتد اكثر من ٢٣ عاما ناشئاً و لاعبا بالفريق الأول،و مع اقتراب نهاية تعاقدي الحالي،فقد استخرت الله في اتخاذ احد اهم قراراتي و أصعبها داخل النادي الأهلي و التي بها ارفع الحرج عن مجلس الإدارة التي أكن لها كل احترام و لما استشعرته أيضا من حساسيه تجاه هذا الملف.١
