Club career

Other than two unassuming spells abroad in Switzerland and Greece, Hassan played mainly for hometown's Al-Ahly, for which he made his first-team debuts aged 18, playing his last match for the club sixteen years later. He ranked first in the club in several categories, and won a total of 25 titles with it, including 11 leagues; he was only one of two players to find the net in derbies for each team (Zamalek/Al-Ahly).

In 2000, already at 34, Hassan left Al-Ahly, going to represent Al-Ain FC, Zamalek SC - adding three more leagues and the 2002 Champions League - El-Masry, Tersana and Al-Ittihad Al-Sakndary, while continuing to score at length. He retired aged almost 42, having played most of the time with his sibling Ibrahim, including abroad.

On February 29, 2008, Hassan was named both general manager and coach of former club El-Masry,[1] before signing at modest Itesalat.[2]

After the sacking of French coach Henri Michel, he was named manager of former side Zamalek, on 30 November 2009.[3] his first match in charge was on December 3 2009, which ended in a controversial 2–1 loss against Haras El Hodood, as opposing player Ahmed Eid Abdel Malek was not supposed to play in that match, having been sent off the previous one. Abdel Malek ended up playing, and scored Hodood's first goal.

Hassan's first win at Zamalek came on the 12th, against El-Masry (3–0); in only five matches, he took the club from 14th place to 5th.

International career

Hassan received a total of 169 caps for Egypt, scoring 69 goals, both national records. He appeared for the nation at the 1990 FIFA World Cup, helping the Pharaohs achieve two draws while narrowly going down 0–1 to England. Ibrahim was also an undisputed starter.

Aged 40, Hassan was co-captain of the national team at the 2006 African Cup of Nations, and played three times and netted once for the hosts, winning the last of his three continental competitions.
