    Time for someone like Abd El Rahman Magdy who has been an excellent agent by far, to look forward for lethal talents like Mohamed Ibrahim and Ramy Rabea and help them to move to Europe. It’s just very disappointing to watch these two talented youth playing here in a local league.

    “All” Egyptian players are born and raised in Egypt, unlike almost all African known players whom are European raised and born. That’s why our players really hadn’t big opportunities like other Africans to make it big. Just imagine if Treka could ever have the opportunity to play in Europe and be known worldwide and people could see his talent.
