Salah’s father: My son’s injury one of the worst moments of my life
Mohamed Salah’s father Salah Ghaly talked about his son’s recent injury and football career highlights in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Ghaly explains in the interview the horror he felt when his son was injured during Roma’s match against city rivals Lazio as Salah was stretchered off with an ankle injury.
“When I heard that he got injured it was one of the worst moments of my life,” he said to La Gazzetta dello Sport’s Mohamed Mahamoudy. “I was really scared and I didn’t know what was going on.
“Luckily I was reassured soon after he Salah contacted his sister to tell us that he was fine. I am sure will return stronger than before.”
Ghaly confirmed that the 23-year-old is happier in Roma than in Florence and that he’s got all the support he needs from his team mates. “He now plays for a team that aspires to win titles and all his teammates are fond of him,” he explained.
In his answer to a question about Mohamed Salah’s football beginning, his father talked about Salah’s early passion for football at a young age when he joined the Cairo based Arab Contractors at the age of 14. “He had to leave home (Basyoun) every day at nine in the morning and then would come back at nine at night; sometimes even later. I am amazed that he managed to go through it all.”
At the end of the interview, Ghaly ensured that Salah is enjoying his stay in Italy especially because many Egyptians are living in Italy which makes him feel at home.
