Ahmed Al-Mohammadi, the English star of Aston Villa, who recently left the team, denied the authenticity of the reports that linked his departure from the Villains to the move to Al-Ahly Club, especially since his age has reached 33 years and it has become difficult to stay in Europe for a longer period.
He explained in televised statements to the Ontime Stadium program, on Ontime Sports, with the journalist Ahmed Schubert: “Al-Ahly is a big club with great fans and it is an honor for any player to move to it, but I will end my career in Europe, and I will not return to the Egyptian league again.”
Al-Mohammadi continued, “I got a promise from the Aston Villa management to work in the technical staff after retiring, and my relationship with all the club’s elements is very good, and I look forward to the training experience in the English Premier League.”
He continued: “I am very satisfied with my career as a player in the English Premier League or my international career with the national team, and therefore I respect Al-Badri’s view of my exclusion from the national team list in the recent period.”
The former Aston Villa star believes that Al-Badri’s decision to appoint Mohamed Salah as captain of the national team is completely correct, saying: “I am against the principle of seniority in appointing a captain for the team, this matter does not exist in Europe, and if I were present, I would have been the first to agree to granting the badge to Mohamed Salah.”
