Gamal Hamza (Arabic: جمال حمزة‎) (born 5 December 1981 in Cairo, Egypt) is an Egyptian former footballer. He played for Zamalek SC for most of his football career. He last played for the Egyptian Premier League side Haras El-Hodood.

Career[edit]

Zamalek[edit]

Hamza is a Zamalek youth academy graduate, and is considered one of the best Egyptian forwards. He is one of the highest scoring players in Cairo Derby against Al-Ahly with eight goals.[citation needed] He is known for once having sported a reverse-Mohawk haircut, which he has since abandoned.

On 14 May 2009, Hamza signed a pre-contract with the Swiss club FC Luzern. However, no agreement between Luzern and Hamza's club Al Zamalek came about.

Mainz[edit]

On 24 June 2009, Hamza signed with the German side 1. FSV Mainz 05 on a 2+1 basis,[1] and was on 11 October 2009 released from his contract.

El Gouna FC[edit]

Having destroyed any hope of a possible comeback to former club Zamalek by choosing their bitter rivals Ahly over them, Hamza returned to former club El Gouna and made a good impression by scoring three goals in the league's first four matches. After a dispute with the technical staff, Hamza was completely excluded from all of the club's matches for the remainder of the first half of the season and a decision was reached to sell him in the winter transfer window.


International career[edit]

Hamza played in the World Youth Cup U20 Argentina in 2001 and holds 18 games, scoring four goals for the A-team.[2] He plays for the Egyptian football team[3]
