Chisom Chikatara joins El Gouna
Felele247.com.ng have scooped that former Abia Warriors forward Chisom Chikatara has successfully joined Eygptian premier league side El Gouna Football League after terminating his contract with Moroccoan giant Wydad Casablanca of Morocco.
The CHAN 2016 top scorer was presented to the club faithfuls after he signed 2 years contract with El Gouna, which will keep him until 2020, becoming the club’s summer 19th signing.
Chikatara emerged as a target for Zamalek in 2016 after the CHAN tournament, but he moved to Wydad Casablanca and Zamalek signed Zambia striker Emmanuel Mayuka instead.
During his time in Morocco, Chikatara scored only twice in 19 games and has won the 2017 CAF Champions League title, CAF Super Cup, and the league title.
El-Gouna have now completed their foreign quota, with the Nigerian becoming their fourth foreign player alongside Cameroon international Joseph Ngwem, Gatoch Panom of Ethiopia, and Ivory Coast’s Abdoulaye Coulibaly.
They are currently ninth in the Egyptian Premier League with four points from three games, and their next game will be against Entag El-Harby on Sunday, August 26.
