Ramadan Sobhy: I don’t feel any pressure, Egypt can win AFCON
Sobhy has been one of Al Ahly’s most vital players this season, scoring five goals and delivering 10 assists so far in the ongoing season.
The 19-year-old attacking midfielder’s splendid displays is rumored to have caught the eyes of several suitors in Europe, but the only club which have taken a concrete step towards the acquisition of the player is PL side Stoke City.
“Actually I feel no pressure because I don’t feel worried once I run onto the pitch. The only thing I feel is the big responsibility I carry on my shoulder to help my team win,” Sobhy told FIFA.com.
Ramadan also spoke about the crisis suffered by the Egyptian national team in the last five years, saying that it is normal for any team to suffer a decline in performance.
“I am confident about our [Egypt] ability to achieve the AFCON title and seal World Cup qualification. The current group of players consists of young players who are hungry for glory, to reach the World Cup you have to be ready to face any opponent.”
“[Martin] Jol’s treatment of all [Al Ahly] players is impressive, in addition to the tactical work he does which seemed to be clear in the team’s huge attacking effectiveness. He is also a friendly person and creates a great atmosphere inside the locker room.”
“A move abroad? I don’t have a favourite option. It is not important whether it is a big or small club, I am insisting on fulfilling my dream of playing in Europe,” Sobhy concluded.
