At the start of the 2007-2008 season, when the manager Mohamed Amer was under pressure from fans after losing a number of matches, Samna was caught on camera going to the away stand of the Cairo International Stadium to calm the Al-Ittihad Al-Iskandary fans down himself, and asking them to stop chanting against his manager.
His headed goal for Al-Ittihad Al-Iskandary at Petrojet in the final days of the 2007-2008 season is one of the most famous in the Alexandrian club's history, as it kept them from being relegated for the first time from the Egyptian Premier League.
He joined Asyut Petroleum from Al-Ittihad Al-Iskandary in 2008 for a record club salary fee. In summer 2009, he rejected offers from El Zamalek and Ismaily and signed for Petrojet for around €100,000.
