Mustafa Muhammad was asked about the Turkish offer, and he answered to the French newspaper: “This is true. Fenerbahce wants me, and I want to join this ancient Turkish club. I am 23 years old and it is the right time to take a step forward and go to Europe. I want to leave Egypt.”
On the opposition of Mortada Mansour, President of Zamalek, to the move due to political problems between Egypt and Turkey, Mustafa Muhammad replied: “Yes, I know that, and there is nothing in my hand in this regard, I am a professional footballer and I have nothing to do with politics. I want to leave for the Turkish league as soon as possible, to develop in this great competition, I just want to do my job. “
He expressed his pride in playing for Zamalek: “Playing for Zamalek is an honor for me. It is one of the biggest clubs in Africa. Playing for him is always full of enthusiasm and the club’s fans are very emotional, it is a big institution in Egypt.”
He concluded, commenting on the title of “bulldozer” which he acquired in Egyptian stadiums: “I like this title. I ask people for the bulldozer because I have strength, but recently I have been called an anaconda.”
Mortada Mansour, President of Zamalek, had revealed the arrival of two Turkish shows to Mustafa Mohamed several days ago. (See details)
