Luzern manager Bernegger: Kahraba proved he was not professional

Posted on March 28, 2014

Bernegger Kahraba
manager Carlos Bernegger blasts Egypt international Mahmoud Abdel-Moneim ‘Kahraba’, calling him unprofessional and hinting that he’s immature.

Amidst the ongoing fiasco regarding Mahmoud Kahraba’s contract termination with the Swiss side, Luzern manager Bernegger aimed some hard words at the player in today’s press conference.

“We tried a lot to make Kahraba comfortable in Luzern but all of that effort went to waste.

“We even hosted his family to make all the conditions available for him to benefit the club.

“Kahraba is 19-years-old but thinks that he is bigger a 113-year-old club.

“I hoped that Kahraba would become a mature adult. Maturity is much more important than the player.

Earlier reports from Switzerland indicated that Kahraba left the club in an unprofessional manner, going as far as not shaking hands with the Swiss’ club’s manager of football, Alexander Frei.

“Kahraba’s reaction in the end proved that he was not professional and that he could not continue with us. I do not want to speak about the matter again,” Bernegger said aggressively.

It is worth noting that Kahraba has denied all claims about him misbehaving, saying that he had no problems with the club while his agent said that him and his client requested the player’s contract termination and not the club.

Kahraba follows in the footsteps of Egyptian players being called unprofessional by former managers, most lately Martin Jol on Hossam Ghaly and Steve Bruce on Amr Zaki.

    Here we go again! Regarding what the Agent said, it does not make sense! Why should a player request a Contract Termination in the Middle of the Season????

      Probably the same reason he chose not to extend his contract and the treatment following that decision

    Non sense, they FORCED him to sign a contract for them while he refused. He’s an ENPPI player and he did not want to make a full move their as he wanted to play at any EPL club in the near future. He thought signing for FC Luzern with a 3 or 4 years contract will definitely low his opportunities for an EPL move. You know well that Kahraba is no Hossam ghaly or Mido, Kahraba wasn’t called by Coach Shawaay Gharib in the Egypt-Bosnia game but he never said any bad thing or made any bad act and respected his decision. The boy has all the right to dream big and not to be forced to rot their. Support Kahraba, don’t ruin his image!!

      Kahraba is Egypt’s new big thing. He would never ever be a shame! At least listen from him, he has all the right to refuse being forced to sign for a 3 -4 years contract their.

    I think it is the club and its manager who have proved to be immature by spreading lies. Now Egyptians know to stay away from this club. I was wondering why before that the teams leading scorer wasnt starting and coming off the bench in their loses

    Exactly! And what is more immature is our media, which is slaughtering the boy for dreaming big and refusing to end his career at FC Luzern with a 3-5 years contract.
