Bassem Morsi: I don’t care about the critics
Bassem Morsi spoke to Al Hayah TV channel as he prepares with the Egyptian national team for their upcoming friendly games against Jordan and Libya.
Morsi spoke about his lack of form saying, “People shouldn’t judge my performance now, the evaluation must come at the end of the season.”
He added, “The current Egyptian league top scorer has only 6 goals and everything is possible.”
Wadi Degla forward Stanley Ohawuchi, who Zamalek were interested in before signing Zambia striker Emmanuel Mayuka this month, is currently the Egyptian Premier League top goalscorer with 8 goals, while Morsi has yet to find the back of the net this season in 11 appearances.
When asked about how he deals with his criticism Morsi replied, “I do my best every time and I don’t care about the criticism. Those who criticize me now will be forced to respect me at the end of the season.”
The 24-year-old then spoke about Zamalek’s disappointing 1-1 draw against Smouha saying, “The 1 on 1 was my first missed chance with Zamalek yesterday, however my disappointed is due to the result not the chance, we all didn’t sleep after that result. The technical staff are doing their best and we are all disappointed for losing two points.”
His comments regards his missed one on one come after Zamalek’s president Mortada Mansor ordered Mido not play him for the subsequent matches.
Morsi was asked about his future with Zamalek and the striker denied any desire to leave the club. He said, “I am very happy at Zamalek, the news about my departure is just rumors. When I leave Zamalek I’ll leave with much respect.”
Zamalek are currently in second place with 31 points, 1 point behind the leader Al Ahly, after 14 games.
The White Knights are heading to face Ismaily on February 3rd after the international break.
