Amr Zaki: Europe is the way for World Cup qualification
Ex-Wigan Athletic striker Amr Zaki thinks that the only way for Egypt to qualify to the World Cup is by having more players move to Europe at a young age.
“When you look at the players who have succeeded in Europe like Hany Ramzy, Mido, Zidan and Elmohamady, you’ll see that they left to Europe when they were young,” Zaki said on his official website.
“There has to be a long term plan so that we have no less than 50 players are playing across Europe. I have no idea why Egyptian clubs give players and clubs a hard time in negotiations. They must agree to the sale of the players. Players like Mohamed Ibrahim, Omar Gaber and Saleh Gomaa,” Zaki continued.
“We already have some excellent players like ‘Kahraba’ and Mohamed Salah. But that’s not enough, we need other’s like Rami Rabia to go too.
“When you look at some African clubs you’ll find that they permit their players to move abroad at such a young age and without wanting much money for them which makes a difference. Take a look at Algeria, they’ve qualified to the World Cup for the second time in a row although the current generation is very different than the one that qualified in 2010. Most of these players play in Europe and this explains why they’ve qualified again,” Zaki concluded.
It is worth noting that Mohamed Ibrahim, who looks like he’s set to be on his way to Malaga CF, was given a hard time during the negotiations between Zamalek and the Spanish club while Omar Gaber was also given a hard time during negotiations with Valenciennes and their offer was later rejected by the Whites.
