Mahmoud Abou El-Saoud (Arabic: محمود ابو السعود; born November 30, 1987) is an Egyptian footballer who plays as a Goalkeeper for Egyptian Premier League side Arab Contractors. He was also a member of Egypt national football team.
Although he was still playing for the Egyptian Second Division side Mansoura, Mahmoud Abou El-Saoud greatly shined. After a long and intense race with Smouha in 2008–09, Abou El-Saoud led his club to promote from the second division to the Premier League. He continued to put strong performances with his side in the Premier League and as a result he was called by Hassan Shehata to the Egypt national football team for his first time ever. Even with his strong showing, Mansoura was eventually relegated to the second division by the end of the 2009–10 season.
On 22 June 2010, Mansoura chairman, Ibrahim Megahed, announced the transfer of Mahmoud Abou El-Saoud to the Cairo giant Al Ahly. The transfer was estimated for LE 5 million. He made a few appearances in the league, and despite two goalkeeping mistakes in Al Ahly's match against Ismaily that cost them the game, he started the next game, against Semouha, under new coach Zizo.
Although Mahmoud Abou El-Saoud was part of the Egyptian squad that won the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations, he did not participate in any of the matches.
