El-Hadary: I wish I could go back to Al Ahly
The 42-year-old star managed to save a number of chances in his team’s latest match against the club where he spent most of his football career in, Al Ahly. The match ended in a 0-0 draw.
“I talk to the football, hug it and kiss it. Because of that, I can control it in training sessions and matches,” El-Hadary reveals his secrets for an amazing performance. “The stable mood my family provide and my dad’s prayers are also things that helped me perform well.”
He assured that he is only focusing on serving the club he represents right now, yet, he still aspires to return to Al Ahly. “I still dream of returning to Al Ahly and to represent the national team again, however, I won’t feel sad if this doesn’t happen,” he added to 9090 radio station.
El-Hadary also talked about the current players representing Al Ahly, as he pointed out that the difference between the current generation and the previous generation might be the quality of the players themselves and their ambitions, specially that the club is building a new team.
“In the past, when Mohamed Barakat and Mohamed Abou-Treika’s generation used to play, opponents wished we’d only score one or two goals. They feared to score first so that we won’t comeback with three goals at least,” he concluded.
