“Since my first day I felt welcomed in the club and the team, never felt like a stranger and my relationship with my teammates is amazing, specially Mohamed Abdelmoanem “ 

“From the moment I stepped foot in Saudi Arabia, my main focus was winning Ittihad’s game and qualifying for the semi-finals, everyone in the team had the same goal even though we knew that it was going to be a tough game “

“ Now our focus shifted towards Fluminense’s game, I trust my team and I trust their passion and their intentions to win, I knew from the very beginning that at Al Ahly you do everything you can to compete and to win, and that is why I'm doing everything to reach my full potential with the club”.

Emam also spoke about his relationship with Marcel Koller, our head coach, stating that the coach always encourages him to give his best and not pay much attention to any distractions, adding that Koller gives a chance to anyone who's persistent and hard-working.

“The presence of Al Ahly fans in the stands of the stadium in large numbers shook the stadium and their chants were a great motivation for the players during the match”.
