The star of Egypt, Ismaili and the former Al-Ahly channel said on the latter channel: “I was leading the training of the excluded in Al-Ahly, I worked with Akram Tawfik for 7 months, what he offers now does not surprise me. He and Karim Walid (Nedved) were very diligent.”
He continued, “Akram Sabr, moved to El-Gouna and then returned, a diligent player who knows his potential well. I think his place will be preserved in Al-Ahly and the Egyptian national team.”
“He defends superbly, he was a bit impulsive, but he became calm, and his passing became 100% perfect.”
Tawfiq, 23, contributed to Al-Ahly’s crowning the African Champions League by defeating the South African Kaizer Chiefs.
The midfielder was in the right-back position with Al-Ahly to compensate for the absence of Mohamed Hani.
Tawfik is currently participating with the Egyptian Olympic team in the Tokyo 2020 Games.
He will play against Brazil on Saturday in the quarter-finals.
