Roma in 2004. He joined English side Tottenham Hotspur on an 18-month loan in 2005 and eventually joined the club permanently in 2006. He left the club in 2007 to join Middlesbrough, from whom he joined Wigan Athletic and Zamalek on loan.

Club career

Zamalek SC and K.A.A. Gent

Born in Cairo, Mido started his career with Egyptian Premier League club Zamalek SC in 1999.[2] He scored three goals in four appearances with Zamalek, which attracted the attention of Belgian club K.A.A. Gent which signed the player in 2000.[2] He won the Belgian Ebony Shoe in 2001 during his first and only season in Belgium.[3]

AFC Ajax

Mido transferred to Eredivisie team AFC Ajax in 2001.[4] He suffered a concussion during their UEFA Cup match with Limassol, after colliding with a defender.[5] He made his return for the team against SC Heerenveen, a game which Ajax lost 5–1.[6] He was however sent off against FC Twente, after kicking an opponent whilst trying to beat him to the ball,[7] for which he was later given a three match ban.[8] He returned for Ajax against Vitesse, coming on as a substitute in the 75th minute.[9] He failed to be selected for the substitutes bench against Feyenoord in March 2002,[10] which was due to a minor clash with manager Ronald Koeman, and Mido left for a short vacation in Cairo.[11] Mido scored in Ajax's victory over FC Utrecht in the Final of the KNVB Cup, meaning h ended the 2001–02 season with the Dutch League and Cup double.[12]

He played for only 32 minutes against FC Groningen, after a display which lacked creativity.[13] He said afterwards he was tired and was carrying a slight injury during the match, but Koeman criticised Mido saying he was not giving everything.[14] He revealed in September 2002 that he wanted to leave Ajax in the transfer window in late December.[15] However, Mido soon apologised to Koeman and Leo Beenhakker regarding the transfer comments, saying he was "irresponsible" and "unthoughtful". He was handed a fine and suspended from Ajax's game against Olympique Lyonnais.[16] In December of that year, he revealed that he wanted to stay at Ajax.[17] He scored for Ajax during their 6–0 defeat of Willem II in February 2003,[18] but Koeman again critiscised Mido, commenting negatively on his performance against Roda in the KNVB Cup.[19] He was dropped for Ajax's next game against Feyenoord, only featuring as an unused substitute.[20] He suffered a muscle strain in his upper thigh after a friendly for Egypt, and was ruled out of Ajax's game against Groningen.[21] Mido was relegated to the Ajax reserve team for disciplinary reasons,[22] surrounding a perceived lack of effort in training.[23] His situation at the club led to interest from Serie A clubs Juventus and S.S. Lazio and he was later reported to have thrown a pair of scissors at Ajax teammate Zlatan Ibrahimović following an argument in March.[24][25]

Celta de Vigo

Celta de Vigo made a loan offer for Mido in March,[26] which was reported to have fallen through days later as it wasn't approved by FIFA.[27] However, FIFA eventually allowed the move to go through and it was completed on 18 March.[28][29] He scored on his Celta Vigo debut against Athletic Bilbao, which Celta won 2–1.[30] Ajax valued Mido between the values of €5 million and €6 million, amidst interest from clubs in Italy in Spain.[31] Newcastle United were reportedly on the verge of making a bid for Mido in May, but this was ruled out by Mido's agent Christophe Henrotay.[32] Ajax attempted to make him return to the club, but he declined this, in favour of staying at Celta.[33] He suffered a muscle injury whilst training in May,[34] but was available to play in Celta's match against Villarreal CF, which saw Mido sent off in a game which Celta lost 5–0.[35] Mido was linked with a move to A.S. Roma in late May, with Roma chairman Franco Sensi stating "I want Mido",[36] but Ajax revealed they wanted €15 million for him.[37] Ajax turned down a loan move from Real Betis for Mido in June.[38] Olympique de Marseille were then believed to have made an offer for the striker and Celta were not ready to meet Ajax's asking price of €15 million.[39][40]

Olympique de Marseille

Ajax accepted a €12 million bid for Mido from Marseille in July,[41] and completed the move on a five-year contract on 12 July 2003,[42] which made Mido the most expensive Egyptian player ever.[43] He made his debut for Marseille against Dinamo Bucharest in a pre-season game, in which he had to be taken off due to an injury.[44] He then scored his first goals for the club against PAOK in a pre-season game, scoring twice and contributing two assists.[45] He made his official debut for Marseille against En Avant de Guingamp on 1 August 2003.[46] Jean-Pierre Papin gave praise to Mido, saying it was down to players like him that the French Ligue 1 was among the top European leagues.[47] He scored against Real Madrid in a UEFA Champions League match in November, which Marseille lost 2–1.[48]

Mido stated in March 2004 that he may leave Marseille at the end of the 2003–04 season.[49] An English club and several Spanish clubs were believed to be interested in signing Mido, who had been overshadowed at Marseille by Didier Drogba.[50] Atlético Madrid, Real Zaragoza, CA Osasuna and former club Celta Vigo were all rumoured to be interested in signing Mido, with Atlético's interest being confirmed by their Technical Director Toni Muñoz.[51] Meanwhile, Mido was caught speeding on the way to Marseille's game against AS Monaco, which resulted in a court hearing.[52] Reports suggested Roma were ready to sign Mido for a fee of €9 million even though Mido would be out injured for the rest of the French football season.[53][54] Turkish side Beşiktaş J.K. revealed they wanted to sign him, and Mido said he was to have talks with Bobby Robson about a possible move to Newcastle United.[55][56]

A.S. Roma

Mido eventually signed for Roma on the final day of the 2004 summer transfer window, for a fee of €6 million.[57][58] It was confirmed that he would miss the opening game of the season, and possibly the following two games.[59] Mido was penciled in to make his Roma debut against A.C.R. Messina in September 2004, a game in which he did actually play, but Roma lost 4–3.[60][61] Reports suggested that Mido could be sold to Valencia CF in a swap deal with Bernardo Corradi and was also linked with a move to Premier League side Manchester City.[62][63] Southampton were believed to have had Mido on their shortlist of targets, but his agent Christophe Henrotay said Roma would not be willing to let Mido leave the club.[64][65] It was even reported that he had been offered to Southampton on loan but his new agent, Mino Raiola, repeated the earlier claims that Roma wanted to keep Mido until, at least, the end of the season.[66][67] He was linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, with his agent confirming he wanted a move away from Roma.[68]

Tottenham Hotspur

Mido playing for Tottenham Hotspur in 2007

Mido was signed by Tottenham on an 18-month loan deal in January 2005.[69] He scored two goals on his Tottenham debut against Portsmouth in February 2005.[70] He scored three goals in 11 appearances during the 2004–05 season for Tottenham.[71] Mido announced plans in July 2005 to launch his own football academy in Egypt, which had the aim of nurturing the country's young talent.[72] He expressed that he did not wish to return to Roma, but rather sign permanently with Tottenham.[73] Tottenham manager Martin Jol said that the club were confident of signing Mido on a permanent deal due to his good performances,[74] but later admitted Tottenham may be defeated in keeping Mido, with other clubs interested in signing him.[75] His permanent move was further put into doubt in April 2006, after he suffered a new injury problem.[76] He suffered abuse from a small section of the Southampton and West Ham United crowds in 2005, the latter of which manager Alan Pardew apologised for on behalf of the fans.[77][78] He finished the 2005–06 season with 11 goals in 27 games, meaning he was Tottenham's second highest goalscorer.[79] Tottenham confirmed in May 2006 that Mido would be returning to Roma.[80]

However, Mido re-joined Tottenham on 29 August on a permanent deal for a fee of €6.75 million.[81][82] His return to Tottenham was popular with some fans, and he soon commented on the team's official website that he "always knew in his heart he would be coming back" and that he "couldn't wait to pull on a Tottenham shirt, play at the Lane and score some more goals".[83] However, soon after this, Mido was accused of being "irresponsible and disrespectful" by his manager Martin Jol, following comments Mido had made about former Tottenham player Sol Campbell.[84] After failing to score in his first five appearances as a permanent Tottenham player, he finally found the net against rivals West Ham with a match-winning volley,[85] and followed that with two goals against League Two side Milton Keynes Dons in the League Cup.[86] He had to contend with being fourth in line for one of the two striking spots, but insisted that this was a sign of the club's strength, and something he was fully aware of before rejoining the club.[87] However he was linked with a move to Manchester City.[88] Mido scored what looked to be his final goal for Tottenham on 31 January 2007 against Arsenal, but his potential move to Manchester City fell through half an hour before the close of the transfer window.[89][90] He eventually admitted he made a mistake by joining Tottenham on a permanent deal.[91] He ended the 2006–07 season with 23 appearances and five goals.[92]

Middlesbrough

Tottenham reached a £6 million fee with Birmingham City for Mido on 20 July 2007.[93] Birmingham manager Steve Bruce said the move was close to collapsing, as the deal reportedly faltered over the wages and the length of contract Mido was demanding.[94] The deal eventually fell through over a clause that Mido insisted be in the contract.[95] In August 2007 Sunderland made a £6 million bid for him and held talks.[95] Birmingham confirmed they were trying to revive their deal to sign Mido.[96] Middlesbrough then revealed their interest in signing him, matching the £6 million fee of Birmingham and Sunderland and were given permission to speak to him.[97] They eventually signed Mido for a fee of £6 million on a four-year contract on 16 August 2007.[98] He scored on his debut for Middlesbrough against Fulham and on his home debut against Newcastle United.[99][100] During the Newcastle game, Mido was reportedly subject to Islamophobic abuse from some Newcastle supporters, which The Football Association (The FA) was to investigate.[101]

Mido playing for Middlesbrough in 2008

He suffered a stress fracture to the pubic bone which kept him out for more than three months from November 2007 until he returned to first-team action for Middlesbrough's 2–0 FA Cup victory over Mansfield Town on 26 January 2008.[102][103] He was sent off in the 80th minute in a match against Arsenal on 15 March 2008 after kicking Gaël Clichy in the face with his boot,[104] which resulted in him receiving a three-match ban.[105] Mido was ruled out for the remainder of the 2007–08 season in April following a hernia operation on a pelvic injury.[106] He made the bench for Middlesbrough's opening Premier League fixture against former club Tottenham and came on as a substitute in the 82nd minute and scored four minutes later after deflecting Didier Digard's shot.[107] The following weekend saw him score against Liverpool at Anfield to put Middlesbrough 1–0 in the lead, but they eventually lost the game 2–1.[108] This was followed up with goals against Yeovil Town in the League Cup and Portsmouth in the league.[109][110] Mido was again targeted by some Newcastle fans while warming up before Middlesbrough's 0–0 draw, with claims of racist chanting being investigated by The FA.[111] He revealed his anger at The FA's investigation, believing that they would make no difference to any future abuse.[112] Two men were eventually arrested over the chanting and were due to appear at Teesside Magistrates Court.[113]

Wigan Athletic

Mido entered talks with Wigan Athletic over signing on a six-month loan deal,[114] and he completed the move on 23 January 2009.[115] He scored on his debut with the equalizing goal against Liverpool with a penalty kick in a 1–1 draw on 28 January.[116] He scored for Wigan in a 4–1 defeat against Arsenal and he finished the loan spell with 12 appearances and two goals.[117][118] Following Middlesbrough's relegation to the Championship, he failed to report to pre-season training,[119] and he was eventually fined by the club after not turning up after a fortnight.[120] He returned to training a day after this.[120]

Return to Zamalek

Middlesbrough accepted an undisclosed offer for Mido from an unnamed club on 26 July, and he completed a season-long move to former club Zamalek on 3 August,[121] who have an option to sign him permanently if they are able to meet Middlesbrough's terms.[122] On 20 August Mido made a disappointing debut for Zamalek, wasting a second-half penalty as Zamalek threw away their lead to suffer a late 2–1 home victory to Petrojet in the Egyptian Premier League.[123]

West Ham United

Mido joined West Ham United on a four-month loan on 1 February 2010 after his season-long loan spell with Zamalek was terminated by mutual agreement. He stated "I had to sacrifice some things but I'm here to play football again and I'm here to prove a point. I'm very happy to be here, it's a great club - and I'm sure I'll do well here."[124] West Ham chairman David Sullivan announced that in order for Mido to secure his long-term footballing future, his contract with West Ham put him amongst the lowest earners in the Premier League. Sullivan said "He doesn't want to be known as a 'has been' of English football, so he was willing to come here to play for a nominal fee, just £1,000 a week."[125] He made his debut for West Ham on 6 February in 2–1 away defeat against Burnley.[126]

International career

Mido played 13 times for the Egypt youth team between 1999 and 2001.[127]

He has earned 51 caps for Egypt and scored 19 goals.[2] Mido scored on his international debut against the United Arab Emirates, which Egypt won 2–1.[74] Mido sent a fax to the Egypt team to tell them he was not available for international selection in May 2004, saying he was not psychologically fit to join the team.[128] Mido was a part of the Egypt squad that played at the 2004 African Cup of Nations.[43]

Egypt coach Marco Tardelli dropped Mido in September 2004, after Mido claimed to be unavailable for the national team due to an injury, but played in a friendly match for Roma 24 hours later.[129][130] A day later, Mido rejected accusations that he refused to play for his country.[131] Also, the Egyptian Football Association announced that he would not play for the team again. However, Tardelli was sacked as Egypt coach and in January 2005 the Egyptian Football Association said they would consider bringing Mido back into the team if he were to apologise for his past behaviour.[74] Mido flew to Cairo in February 2005 and made a public apology and the following month he was recalled by the national team.[130][132] Mido withdrew from Egypt's 2006 World Cup qualifier against Cameroon, after sustaining a muscle tear while playing with Tottenham Hotspur.[133]

Mido was thrown out of the Egypt team during the 2006 African Cup of Nations as a consequence of an argument with coach Hassan Shehata in the semi-final game against Senegal, which started after Mido reacted badly to being substituted. His replacement Amr Zaki came on to score a header with his first touch, putting Egypt into the final.[134] A day later, Mido reconciled with Shehata, but was given a six-month suspension from playing with Egypt.[135] Mido was eventually recalled by the side following his suspension, ready for the 2008 African Cup of Nations qualification which Egypt won.[136] Mido was included in the Egypt squad to play South Africa in London in November 2006, despite suffering from a knee injury at the time.[137] He was however left out of the Egypt squad to play Mauritania in an African Nations Cup qualifier in March 2007.[138]
