Zamalek Release Karim Alhassan

Egyptian giants Zamalek have decided to release Ghanaian defender Karim Alhassan after failing to get a buyer for him.

Zamalek coach Hassan Shehata recommended the sacking of the player a month ago.

The former Ghana Under-20 centre-back signed for the Whites in August 2011 on a five-year deal.

“We put Karim on ‘for sale’ list for quite a while but he did not have any offers so we will have to let him go especially since we need his place on the team after signing the Central African Abd Allah Cisse,” Club board member Abd Allah George confirmed

“As you know we are only allowed three foreign players on the team and we already have Razaq Omotoyossi from Benin and Alexis Enam from Cameroon.”

Alhassan rejected a contract extension with Hearts of Oak before leaving for abroad last year.
