CAIRO – 2 July 2017: Stanley Ohawuchi announced he wants to continue playing with Zamalek after the end of his 2016/2017 loan from Wadi Degla on Friday.
“I want to stay in Zamalek, but I will accept any decision from Wadi Degla board,” Stanley told Egypt Today.
The Nigerian striker has had success with Zamalek as he scored the winning goal in the second leg of the 2016 African Champions League final; Zamalek still lost against South African side Mamelodi Sundowns.
Stanley joined Zamalek last summer on a one year loan from Wadi Degla.
Zamalek has reportedly offered $1 million to Wadi Degla for the trio Mostafa Mohamed, Eslam Gamal and Benjamin Acheampong in exchange for keeping Stanley in Zamalek, but Wadi Degla wanted Zamalek to pay for the trio $1.3 million instead.
With hopes of securing a win to advance to the next round, Stanley prepares with Zamalek to play against Zimbabwean side, CAPS United, in the African Champions League group stage on Sunday.
Zamalek signing Stanley may be a strategy in supporting the attacking line of the club in the African Champions League.
