Elneny: I’m happy with my performance, not the result
Mohamed Elneny expressed his delight with his individual performance at the Camp Nou but was left disappointed after Arsenal’s 3-1 defeat to Barcelona.
Elneny scored his first goal for Arsenal on Wednesday night, at the Camp Nou against Barcelona, but it was not enough as the Gunners fell 3-1 and were eliminated from the UEFA Champions League, losing 5-1 on aggregate.
The strike made the 23-year-old midfielder just the third Egypt international to score in the Champions League, and the fifth African player in history to score against Barcelona in the competition.
Speaking to beIN Sports after the match, Elneny said: “We did what we could today. Sure, we lost, but we tried our best. We were playing against a big team.”
“We’re still up for the league. We need to focus. We still have nine games to go and God willing we can do it.
“We know it’s a big stadium and a great stadium too but I’m happy with my performance today, but not that happy about the result. I knew it’d be hard, but there is no ‘hard’ in football.”
