CAIRO: Ahmed Hassan said on Wednesday he might return to Egypt in the January transfer window if he convinces Anderlecht officials to release him.
Hassan initially planned to leave Anderlecht when his contract expires next summer but opted to make it earlier following the Belgian champions elimination from the UEFA Champions League.
The Egypt skipper, who was close to joining Zamalek, has yet to decide on his new destination in Egypt.
The reports linking me with Al Ahly or Zamalek are just personal views, nothing is concrete. I don t want a repetition of last season s rumors, Hassan told FilGoal.com.
Any decision I took in the off-season will not be necessary similar to what I intend to do in January. I have to study all offers before making my final decision, he added, referring to his past agreement with Zamalek.
The 32-year-old does not believe his current form is below-par but admitted he struggled during the past three matches in the Belgian League due to exhaustion.
My displays are no different to last season, which I finished brilliantly.
I wasn t at my best during the past three matches because I hadn t any time to rest; however, the coach has faith in me and always includes me in the starting line-up.
Hassan, however, said that he will fast during Ramadan days, the attitude which always gets him into trouble with managers.
