The Lebanese national team captain, Hassan Maatouk, who was recently playing with Fujairah, the Emirati team, agrees to sign with Nejmeh.
The Lebanese international has played in the Lebanese league from 2005 till 2012 with Al-Ahed, scoring 89 goals in 120 appearances. He then went on and joined Ajman in UAE for a season, where he appeared in 21 games and visited the net 6 times.
Hassan Maatouk last but not least joined Fujairah in 2013, and is now their all time leading scorer with 36 goals in 62 appearances.
His decision of joining Nejmeh is based on his need to be in Lebanon for family reasons, and him being close to Nejmeh’s coach, Jamal El Hajj.
