Former Accra Hearts of Oak defender, Fatawu Mohammed has left Ghana to sign a deal with Egyptian Premier League side, Beni Suef Football Club.
The versatile full back arrived in Egypt with the CEO of Sports Light Consult, Nana Kwarteng, who has offered a lot of Ghanaian players the opportunity to play outside.
Mohammed had a ten-year stint with his last club Hears of Oak, after joining from Real Tamale United in 2012. Six years later, he was named as the club’s captain before earning his first and only Black Stars invitation ahead of a World Cup qualifying fixture away to South Africa in November 2021.
He served as captain of the club since 2018 but was stripped off by the Serbian trainer Slavko Matic who took over as the head coach position after Samuel Boadu’s exit.
The 30-year-old played a pivotal role for the club to emerge champions of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season and also won two MTN FA Cups with Hearts before his contract was terminated in December 2022.
He will be joining the Egyptian side as a free agent.
