“The current generation is one of the best in Egypt, and the spirit between them is wonderful, and there have been no disputes regarding the leadership badge,” Abdel Aziz said in a press conference.
He continued “arranging the badge in the absence of Ramadan Subhi, Taher Muhammad Taher, then Omar Radwan, then Osama Jalal.”
During the conference, Mahmoud Merhi, the military production player and the Olympic team, spoke about competition in the defense line.
Mari said: “The competition between me and any player in the defense line is honorable and we are all supportive of each other and I strive only, whether it is with the Tigris or the national team.”
He continued, “Shawky’s evaluation is strange to me through my performance with my team and my lack of participation in the Under-23 Nations Cup did not anger me. I supported my colleagues and we succeeded in qualifying for the Tokyo Olympics and crowning the championship.”
Enppi goalkeeper Mahmoud Gad talked about the possibility of an elderly goalkeeper such as Mohamed El-Shennawi, Al-Ahly goalkeeper, or Mohamed Abdel Monsef, the Tigris goalkeeper, in the Olympics.
“It gives me pleasure and honor for the presence of El-Shenawi, Abdel-Monsef, or any guard, even if at my expense,” said Gad.
He continued, “The decision in the end by Shawqi Gharib and Osama Abdel Karim, in general, to wear the Egyptian national team shirt is a great honor for me.”
Taher Mohamed Taher welcomed the joining of Mohamed Salah, the Liverpool star, to the Olympic team in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.
Taher said: “It is a great honor for us to have Salah with us, because he is a great player, and the decision whether or not to be there belongs to Shawky Gharib.”
“We are all focused on the Olympics, it is a big dream for me and every player to be on the final list to participate in Tokyo,” he added.
He concluded, “Shawky Gharib and the players are making great efforts and implementing the instructions of the technical staff. I was hoping to participate in the Under-23 Nations Cup, but the injury prevented me from participating.”
The Olympiad will be held from July 23 to August 8.
