Hossam Hassan Hussein (Arabic: حسام حسن حسين‎; born 10 August 1966) is an Egyptian retired footballer who played as a striker, and the current manager of the Zamalek SC in the Egyptian Premier League.

A prolific goalscorer, he is Egypt's all-time top scorer with 68 goals in 176 appearances.[1] His twin brother Ibrahim also played professional football, and they shared teams for most of their extensive careers.[2][3]

Hassan represented the national team in the 1990 World Cup and seven Africa Cup of Nations tournaments.

Club career[edit]

Other than two unassuming spells abroad in Switzerland and Greece, Cairo-born Hassan played mainly for hometown's Al-Ahly, for which he made his first-team debuts aged 18, playing his last match for the club sixteen years later. He ranked first in the club in several categories and won a total of 25 titles with it, including 11 leagues; he was only one of two players ever to find the net in derbies for each team.

In 2000, already at 34, Hassan left Al-Ahly, going to represent Al Ain SCC, Zamalek SC – adding three more leagues and the 2002 CAF Champions LeagueAl-Masry Club, Tersana and Al-Ittihad Al-Sakndary, while continuing to score at length. He retired aged almost 42, having played most of the time with his sibling Ibrahim, including abroad.

International career[edit]

He appeared for the nation at the 1990 FIFA World Cup, helping the Pharaohs achieve two draws while narrowly going down 0–1 to England. Ibrahim was also an undisputed starter.

Aged 40, Hassan was captain of the national team at the 2006 African Cup of Nations, and played three times and netted once for the hosts, winning the last of his three continental competitions.

Coaching career[edit]

On 29 February 2008 Hassan was named both general manager and coach of former club Al-Masry,[4] before signing at modest Itesalat.[5]

After the sacking of French coach Henri Michel, he was named manager of former side Zamalek, on 30 November 2009.[6] his first match in charge was on 3 December, which ended in a controversial 1–2 away loss against Haras El Hodood, as opposing player Ahmed Eid Abdel Malek was not supposed to play in that match, having been sent off the previous one (Abdel Malek ended up playing, and scored Hodood's first goal).

Hassan's first win at Zamalek came on the 12th, against Al-Masry (3–0). In twelve matches he took the club from 14th place to second, only losing one game and drawing another.
