In February 2003, after five years with Bari, Said moved to Serie B side Messina for ths second half of the 2002–03 season. In summer 2003 he moved to Fiorentina where he could not find his place. During the 2004–2005 season he played for and suffered relegation with Belgian first-tier club Mons.
His performances during the Africa Cup of Nations 2008 in Ghana made Said a target for Egypt's biggest clubs, Zamalek SC and Al Ahly. On 5 July 2018, Zamalek announced the signing of Said on a reported three-year contract. Two days later, it was reported Said had refused to sign the contract despite having signed a pre-contract agreement. On 12 July, Said was fined by the Egyptian Football Association EGP 350,000 and obliging him to play Zamalek after he had stated he was not "willing to play for any team in Egypt other than Ahli".
In April 2018, Said announced he would retire at the end of the season.
He returned to Egypt national football team in 2004 but he did not participate in the winning team of 2006, however Hassan Shehata the coach of Egypt has recalled him in the preliminary squad for 2008 Africa Cup of Nations which won the cup too.
