Amr Warda

U-20 international begins a trial with Norwegian top flight side IK Start FC ahead of a potential transfer from Al Ahly.

Al Ahly U-20 playmaker Amr Warda arrived in Norway on Thursday night ahead of his week-long trial with Tippeligaen side IK Start FC.

The 20-year-old, who said he played his last match for Al Ahly’s U-20 side on Tuesday, began training with IK Start on Friday morning and is soon expected to feature for the Norwegian side in a friendly.

Speaking to the Tippeligaen side’s official website, Warda said: “I’m here for trial and I will do my best to play in IK Start.”

When asked how he will convince head coach Mons Ivar Mjelde of his skills, Warda responded: “I will do everything in the field, and I will show him my skills for him to know I’m a good player to play in IK Start.”

The young Egyptian did not seem too impressed with Norway’s weather however, and admitted this was his first time ever seeing snow – while the stadium’s pitch is covered in it.

Warda, who just missed out of Egypt’s squad for the 2013 U-20 World Cup – after falling out with coach Rabie Yassin – was also on trial with La Liga side Sevilla FC in the summer.

The playmaker is expected to be included in Hossam El-Badry’s Olympic team for the 2015 Africa U-23 Championship in DR Congo as they aim to qualify for Rio 2016.
