Smouha and ex-Zamalek manager Helmy Toulan had his say about , expressing that the player is ‘way better’ than Abou-Treika was.

After Shikabala’s impressive start of the season for Mido’s Ismaily, Smouha manager Helmy Toulan had his say when he was compared to legendary Egypt player .

When asked who’s better Shikabala or Abou-Treika, Toulan told Al Nahar: “Shikabala isn’t physically fit yet and look what he’s doing with Ismaily. If Shikabala loses five or six kilos and becomes fit physically and technically he’ll be 100 times better.”

“Shikabala has the capabilities and skills that Abou-Treika never had putting him in a league of his own far over Abou-Treika.”

Toulan concluded saying that Shikabala could’ve played for the top sides in Europe: “During my time in Zamalek, Shikabala was the only player that could’ve played in Barcelona or Real Madrid as he was very professional and disciplined.”

Toulan’s comments come after Ahmed Hossam ‘Mido’ confirmed Shikabala is committed to Ismaily this season.
