A professional football player from France, Karim El Hany is a midfielder who plays at the highest level of the game. Beginning his career at GFCO Ajaccio or Gazelec Ajaccio, Karim was just 19-years old when he made his debut for the first team. He made just a single appearance in 2008-09, his debut season, spending most of his time on the bench. However, the following season would be more active as he notched up 18 appearances and even scored his first goal at the professional level.
By the time he moved out of the club in 2010, he had played over 50 games for the side, scoring 8 times as well. In 2010-11, El Hany moved to AC Ajaccio, the first division side from the same city as GFCO Ajaccio. In his very first season, El Hany made 11 starts and 13 appearances as a substitute, earning 24 appearances for his debut season. He helped the team gain promotion to the first division and, since then, has been a part of the first team on an off-&-on basis.
