Changwon LG Sackers announced on Friday the signing of Egyptian basketball player and former player Assam Merhi.
The South Korean club have not released the contract period for the 30-year-old.
Assem Marei previously played for the 2021-2022 South Korean team.
After that, Assem Marei went to Jamalek and signed a contract with the team to participate in the BAL African Basketball Championship, but a crisis in the recruitment papers prevented him from traveling to Rwanda on a white team mission.
Assem Marei previously told FilGoal.com: “I did not make my decision 100%, but I will continue my career in Korea on a large scale. I had two opportunities to play in Turkey or Korea, but on a larger scale I will continue in Korea.”
In the Egyptian national team and World Cup qualifiers, he said: “I see the chances of the Egyptian team reaching the World Cup are strong, but it is not easy, and with my colleagues and technical staff we can reach, we need focus and emotional stability and meet certain standards. Must follow, and each does his part. “
He stressed, “The teams were strong at the last African Championship, and I saw Senegal as a strong team, and Congo is a good team, but unlike Tunisia or Nigeria, I see the experience of the players has changed now. Helps improve. “
He added, “I was not able to participate in the African Championship, not because of the interruption, but if I had joined the Egypt camp I would have stayed in isolation for 21 days in Korea. I will not be able to play in any tournament and this will be considered the end of my contract. Let’s join. “
Egypt prepares to play in the second round of the first round of the World Cup qualifiers.
The Egyptian national team participated in the first round held in Senegal, during which it was able to score 5 points.
