Arsenal midfielder Mohamed El-Nani confirmed that he always asked his teammates to pray for him to score goals in one of the Premier League matches.
In statements to the official website of Arsenal, Al-Nani indicated that scoring goals previously in the Champions League or European League is not comparable to scoring in Premier League.
Al-Nini scored a goal for Arsenal against Newcastle this evening, Sunday, in the Premier League matches.
“We needed to win the Newcastle match before the next Villarreal confrontation. We realized the importance of this match. We succeeded in achieving the three points. The way we played today will give us confidence in the next European meeting,” Al-Nini said.
He continued: “I was dreaming of scoring the goal. I used to think a lot about scoring in the English Premier League. I scored in the Champions League and European League and did not score in the Premier League.”
He added: “Premier League is a special competition for me. I always asked my colleagues to pray for me to register for Premier League, and when I did it today I was really happy, but I am more happy with the confrontation points.”
And he added: “The happiness of my colleagues only makes me happier. When you see those around you love you, you will be happy. I feel very grateful for the way they celebrated with me today.”
He concluded: “What happened in the Newcastle meeting gives us more confidence in the Villarreal meeting. Now we can focus on Thursday’s confrontation because everyone knows its importance for us, and we will fight to reach the final of the European League.”
