Hull City’s Elmohamady blasts Bradley over Egypt snub
Hull City’s Elmohamady, the only Egyptian who features regularly in one of Europe’s top five leagues, blasted Egypt coach Bob Bradley after being excluded from the squad to take on Ghana in the return leg of the World Cup qualifier next Tuesday, and blames the American for the Pharaohs 6-1 loss to Ghana in the first leg.
”I don’t understand his decision, I play with my team every week in the top league of the world and he doesn’t explain to me why he took this decision,” Elmohamady was quoted as saying on his official website.
”He was the main reason for the disaster in Ghana, he prepared for the game very bad and started with fear and used incompetent tactics for that tough game.
”I wonder how such a man with a floppy character can lead a big team like Egypt, he’s not even able to face the players and illustrate to them why they don’t start or are being selected in the squad.”
In an interview with KingFut’s Reem Abulleil in June, the Hull City right wing-back heaped praise on Bradley, labeling him as a “professional” who “treats us as professionals and all the players are very comfortable with him.”
Elmohamady made his international debut for the Pharaohs in 2007 at the age of 19, and has been called up to the squad ever since.
