ISMAILIYA: Zhejiang Lucheng striker Mohsen Abou-Greisha revealed that he would return to Ismaili in January after failing to settle at the Chinese club.
I didn t set any conditions to rejoin Ismaili. I m just happy to be back in Ismailia, Abou-Greisha told FilGoal.com on Thursday.
My negotiations with Ismaili board were concluded quickly because I was so keen to return home. I penned a three-and-a-half-year contract.
The 27-year-old striker joined Lucheng last January on a one-year deal in search of regular first-team football.
However, he was left with no choice but to return home after failing to adapt to the Chinese football style.
Abou-Greisha s arrival will boost Ismaili coach Ricardo Ferreira, who has limited attacking options at his disposal.
Currently, Ismaili has one reliable striker in Iraqi Mostafa Karim, who scored five league goals so far this season.
Karim s partner, Mohamed Fadl, did not really impress, scoring just twice nine matches.
In-form midfielder Abdullah Saied is Ismaili s top scorer with six goals.
