Ibrahim Said (Arabic: ابراهيم سعيد‎) (born October 16, 1979) is an Egyptian Football player who is on trial with Toronto FC of MLS, as well as the Egyptian national team.


With Al Ahly

He started his senior career at Al Ahly in 2004. He moved on loan to English club Everton F.C. in 2003, but did not play a competitive match for the club. After claiming his mother was very sick, he returned home after only a short stay at Everton. It has been claimed this was an excuse to go back to compete in a local derby for the team he supported.

With Zamalek

After clashing with officials, players, and coaches at his club El Ahly, Ibrahim made a controversial switch over to Ahly's arch-rivals Zamalek after months of speculation on his future. He had vowed to see out the rest of his contract with Ahly without playing, and the soccer federation took up a case against Ibrahim that his club brought against him. The president of Zamalek, Kamal Darwish, had to pay a large fine the EFA(Egyptian Football Association) handed Ibrahim before he could appear for Zamalek in the Egyptian league.

After the long lay-off away from the playing field, Ibrahim slowly but surely started to prove just how talented he was, and became one of the key members of the Zamalek squad. Thanks to his good form with Zamalek, "Heema"(as fans refer to him as) was called up to the Egyptian national team in the run-up to the 2006 African Nations Cup which was to be played in Egypt. Ibrahim made some remarkable performances in the tournament, shoring up the Egyptian defensive line as a sweeper & stopper.

In Turkey

The opening of the 2007 winter transfer window saw Ibrahim move to Turkey, joining Caykur Rizespor. In summer the same year, Said was signed by Ankaragücü in light of his success at Caykur Rizespor.

Back To Egypt

At the start of the 2008/09 season, Said joined Egyptian Side Ismaily.

In Libya

At the 2009/10 season, Said joined Al-Ahly Tripoli club.
