CAIRO: Ahmed Abou-Mosallam said he is set to leave Strasbourg in January due to lack of regular football.
I will leave in January, the Egyptian defender told FilGoal.com in a phone call from France.
I can t stay any longer (without playing).
The international left-back featured only three times this season and was left out of his side s squad in the past seven games.
Abou-Mosallam has yet to know his next destination but said he will consider offers before deciding in January.
He didn t rule out staying with the club should changes happen in the coaching staff before the New Year.
I may stay only if manager Jean-Marc Furlan left before January, Abou-Mosallam said.
Strasbourg are 10th in the league on 23 points, with two games to go in the first half of the season.
Abou-Mosallam told FilGoal.com in August, I ve been overlooked since he took over as coach.
He signed a 34-year-old French full back, whose knee injury kept him on the sidelines for a year. Yet, he prefers to start him.
The former Al Ahly player moved to Strasbourg two years ago and played a pivotal role in the club s promotion to the French top flight.
