CAIRO: Egypt guardian Essam Al-Hadari is willing to stay with Ismaili until the end of the season, despite his earlier desire to leave in the winter break.
The 37-year-old keeper was strongly poised to leave the Dervishes in January, amid offers from Sudan s Merreikh and Belgium s Lierse.
In case I received my late wages in full, I am willing to stay with Ismaili, he told FilGoal.com.
I hope to return to the starting line-up and I am ready to forget the past, even though I know the board had turned down some good offers for me.
Al-Hadari, who also claimed interest from Brazil s Palmeiras, hasn’t been training regularly since returning from the Nations Cup in Angola due to the delay of his wages.
The former Ahly goalie has been dropped from Ismaili s last two games against Mansoura and Sofapaka of Kenya.
