Tarek El Sayed (Arabic: طارق السيد‎‎; born 9 October 1978) is an Egyptian football player who played for El Zamalek for most of his football career. He also played for Itesalat, and he played for Tersana in the Egyptian Second Division and retired after one season.

El Sayed made several appearances for the Egypt national football team, including nine qualifying matches for various FIFA World Cups.[1]



El Sayed played with El Zamalek for 13 seasons during which he dominated the left wing position. At the end of 2007-2008 season and after winning the Egyptian cup, El Zamalek did not include either Tarek or his teammate Besheer El-Tabei in the new season's team roaster, and so both were free agents.


Shocked to be abandoned by his former team, he moved to Itesalat. He stayed at Itesalat for only half a season and scored 2 goals.[2]


In January 2009, El Sayed agreed to move to Tersana to help the team avoid relegation to the second division. El Sayed scored 2 goals[2] for Tersana by the end of that season, but the club was eventually relegated. El Sayed announced that he would transfer to another team; however, when his transfer to either El Geish or El-Entag El-Harby did not materialize, he decided to retire.

In 2009, Tersana manager Yehia El Sayed convinced Tarek El Sayed to return to football and to lead Tersana in the Egyptian Second Division.
