Our captain Mohamed El Shenawy revealed to us in an exclusive interview the big moments in his career, his future ambitions and also discussed the team's ability to defeat Wydad AC in the CAF champions league to reach the final.
"I am ready to play with the team against Wydad AC after recovering from the injury. I am seeking to win the champions league and qualify to FIFA Club World Cup with Al Ahly", El Shenawy said.
"Getting back to Al Ahly was my main goal since I left the team. My first goal was to wear Al Ahly's jersey once again, while my second one was to play in Europe. But despite receiving different offers from Europe, I refused them all without any hesitation once I received an offer from Al Ahly".
"I worked hard to play with Egypt National team during my time with Tala'ea El Gaish SC, Haras El Hodoud SC and Petrojet, but this period was not stable due to the postponement of the sport activity here in Egypt", El Shenawy added.
"I played several games while I was injured and one of them was against JS Saoura, but we won the game at the end".
"We do not play to win one title, as we seek to win all the titles and this is Al Ahly's mentality. For instance, if we played in 5 tournaments during the season, we seek to win 4 of them at least".
"It was a great honor for me to reach 24 clean sheets this season and to have this important record, but I would not reach this achievement without the team's efforts".
"I met our coach Pitso Mosimane ahead of Al Mokawloon Al Arab game and we are all happy to see him among us, especially that he focused a lot about each detail in the team".
"I was very happy when I knew that Iaancone will stay with us, because he is so special and deal with us in a very spectacular way".
"I always remember my first game in the world cup against Uruguay, as I succeeded to win the man of the match. Also, I remember playing against Cavani and Suarez in this match and they were the toughest forwards I ever played against during my whole career".
"We are currently focusing on defeating Wydad AC and to reach the champions league final, and we all wish to win the beloved title this season".
