Egypt international Amr Warda has re-joined Greek giants PAOK Thessaloniki following a successful short spell with Volos FC.

The lanky winger only left PAOK for fellow Greek Premier League club Volos on a four-year deal in September 2020.

Warda, who has discipline problems at PAOK in the past, flourished at Volos scoring twice and providing one assist in 10 league matches in the current season.

PAOK have now announced the re-signing of the 27-year-old player:

“After about five months in the NPS Volos, Amr Warda returns to Toumba and is immediately made available to the technical staff,” a club statement read.

“The Egyptian midfielder in 10 games with the Magnesia team scored two goals and one assist, being one of the top [players] and is now ready to offer solutions with his quality.”

Warda, who started his professional career at Egyptian powerhouse Al Ahly, joined Portuguese club Feirense on loan from PAOK on 9 August 2017.

However, three days later Portuguese media reported that Warda would exit Feirense as it was claimed that the player harassed the wives of two of his teammates.

His contract was then terminated and he returned to PAOK, who then loaned him out to Greek side Atromitos.

Warda was named in Egypt’s preliminary squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, but he was excluded from the national team camp over sexual harassment claims.

However, the Egyptian Football Association recalled him to the national team two days later after the player posted an apology video on his official account on Facebook.
