Kahraba: I didn’t ask to leave Zamalek
Kahraba came out to deny the rumors suggesting that he wants out, and also revealed how happy and honored he is to stay and play for a club like Zamalek.
Kahraba, who is currently with the Olympic national team ahead of the 2016 Olympics qualifiers spoke to the televised station ‘Al-Hayat 2’ on Friday.
“It’s an honour to join Zamalek and play for them, and my contract has four years left and I didn’t come out to reveal or say anything about leaving,” he said.
“Maybe these rumors came out due to my agent’s travels to search for some offers for me.
“This made people predict that I want to leave but I didn’t say anything or even talk with Zamalek about a possible departure,” he continued.
The 21-year-old winger also revealed,”If I receive a concrete offer I will talk with Zamalek about it, but right now I want to win more trophies and continue what I am achieving with the club.”
“Since day one I promised that I will fight for the team and the fans who supported me, and it is more than enough to see them happy because of me.”
Kahraba also mentioned how upset he is with some of the fans, due to the harsh criticism he gets occasionally.
“When I missed two chances in my first appearance and we lost the match, the fans supported me and took care of me, that’s why I succeeded; because of them”
“But how by any means could some of the fans start cursing me without any evidence revealing that I am leaving? I didn’t even come out to reveal or state that I am leaving,” he mentioned.
“Of course that is something that brings me down and upsets me,” Kahraba concluded.
Kahraba enjoyed an impressive first six months at Zamalek, winning the Egyptian Premier League title and Egyptian Cup, scoring eight goals in 14 games.
