Former Zamalek’s midfielder Ferjani Sassi denied any negotiations with the White Knights expressing his desire to return to the club in the future.
Sassi played for Zamalek for three seasons becoming a fan favourite during his time at the club. The Tunisian won seven trophies with the White Knights including Egyptian Premier League title, CAF Confederations Cup, CAF Super Cup and two Egypt Cup titles.
However, due to the lack of financial resources, Zamalek failed to renew the Tunisian’s contract and the player left for Qatar’s Al-Duhail in a free transfer in 2021.
Following his departure, Sassi filed a complaint against the club over his delayed salary which forced Zamalek to pay him 12 million EGP.
The Tunisian midfielder denied any negotiations with Zamalek for a future return despite the close relationship he has with the club’s fans.
“My contract with Al-Duhail is running for a year-and-a-half, and there are no renewal talks at the moment,” Sassi spoke to the Tunisian website “Win Win”.
“However, it is still early for any talks, now we must focus on performing well this season, and then we will see how it will go,”
“I do not have any offers at all. They speak a lot about me in Egypt, because when you produce distinguished performances, people love you and would love if you were still in the club or if you are about to return ,”
“The fans of Zamalek love the artistic kind of players. I have a special love for the fans of Zamalek, and I hope to return one day. However, my contract is still running with Al-Duhail,”
“I am in contact with Amir Mortada, who talked to me about the complaint, and we will soon reach an amicable solution.”
“Zamalek is like my home. I represented the club for years and I feel that I grew up there. It has a great merit for me, and God willing, I will return to it one day.”
