Zidan scored 13 goals for his club, FSV Mainz in 15 appearances but it was not enough to save it from being relegated to the second tier. He has since transfered to Hamburger SV. Zidan has been in impressive form for Egypt also. He has also become less self centered and more of a team player. He is not yet in the Didier Drogba or Michael Essien league as one of Africa’s superstars but given the right club and manager he should soon succeed.
