The captain is back to the squad after impressing with the Egyptian national team at the 2021 FIFA Arab Cup in Qatar, the same country that hosts our encounter in the CAF Super Cup against Morocco's Raja Casablanca.
In an exclusive interview with Al Ahly’s media department, Mohamed El Shenawy discussed our important clash against the Moroccan champions.
"Firstly, I would like to thank our fans for their support. I am fine and I never play when I have an injury. It was a good experience for me and my teammates to participate in the FIFA Arab Cup."
"We are ready for the CAF Super Cup. We understand the magnitude of the game and we are motivated to defend our title and make our fans happy."
"We have much respect for Raja and we all know the special nature of our matches against the North African clubs. The small details always determine the results of these games."
"Tactical discipline and full concentration are vital in this game. It is only one match to decide who will lift the trophy. We are the defending champions and we have the experience needed to win the game."
"It is always a unique feeling to win a continental title. We know that our fans have a special passion when it comes to winning continental titles. We want to reclaim our position as the club with the most continental titles in the world."
"I am happy that we will be able to rely on the new signings in this important match. It will be a fantastic addition to the team in this game."
"Our fans are our backbone and it will be great to have them in the stands to support us. We want to win the title and celebrate with them after the match."
