Abbas Amidu is a Zimbabwean football player who plays for Egyptian side Smouha as a forward.
He joined Kaizer Chiefs in 2012 before he was deemed surplus to requirements and released to Black Leopards. In 2015, Amidu then joined United Arab Emirates Division One club Masafi on a two-year contract. In 2016 he resurfaced at Dynamos where he trained with the Glamour Boys before he was quickly signed by CAPS United on January 29 2016 on a one-year deal.
In July 2017 he told a publication that he had turned down a $1 million deal from five-time African football champions Zamalek to settle for modest Smouha where he believes he will get game time.
Zamalek were the first to show interest in him after he scored a superb double strike in a Caf Champions League match against them at the National Sports Stadium in June 2017. Amidu also turned down Zambian side Buildcon who were reportedly ready to pay $100 000 for his services. If he had signed for the Zambian club, Amidu would have earned an after tax salary of $4 000, a winning bonus of $400 per match, a two bedroom apartment in Zambia and two return air tickets for him and his spouse every year. At Smouha he was offered a salary of about $6 000 before tax.
