After Al-Masry decided not to participate in the 2012–13 season sympathizing with the relatives of the martyrs of Port Said Stadium disaster, El-Shenawy was loaned to Egyptian giant Zamalek SC for one season.

Shenawy signed a permanent deal for Zamalek in the 2014 summer transfers to replace goalkeeper Abdel-Wahed El-Sayed. He succeeded in having the longest clean sheet streak for Zamalek in Egyptian Premier League history with seven consecutive matches without conceding any goals. He overall got 19 clean sheets in the 2014–15 league. He won the league with Zamalek.


He won the best goalkeeper award in 2011 African Youth Championship along with the bronze medal and the fair play award.[2] He was called up to represent the Egyptian senior team and he has 18 international caps as of August 2016.
