Zamalek’s Iraqi forward completes loan move to Bushehr
Hatem Maher, Friday 3 Dec 2010
Zamalek’s unsettled Iraqi forward Emad Mohamed has joined Iranian side Bushehr on loan for the remainder of the season, the Cairo club announced on Friday

“The deal has been completed after Bushehr paid the transfer fee today,” Zamalek’s interim chairman Galal Ibrahim told Al-Ahram Arabic portal. “The loan deal will come into effect in January and will expire at the end of the season.”

Emad moved to Zamalek in the close season after ending a spell at another Iranian side in Sepahan Esfahan.

He made few substitute appearances under coach Hossam Hassan, who preferred to rely on the likes of Amr Zaki, Ahmed Gaafar and Ivorian striker Abou Kone upfront.

Emadsought to terminate his Zamalek deal, saying that he could not adapt to life in Cairo but the club turned down his request.

The 28-year-old incurred Zamalek’s wrath when he joined up with the Iraqi national team to take part in the Gulf Cup of Nations without their consent.

Hassan initially objected to offloading Emad but Galal gave him the green light to depart, citing the club’s persistent financial problems.
