Kahraba: Ittihad’s reputation convinced me to join
Following his clash with the Zamalek coaching staff in his side’s 0-0 Cairo Derby draw against Al Ahly, an investigation into the issue was opened, before the Saudi giants reached an agreement with Zamalek to secure Kahraba’s services on a season-long loan.
Kahraba has passed his medical before being presented for the first time as an Ittihad player in a press conference, and was given the number 10 shirt to wear next season.
“I’m very proud to be at Ittihad Jeddah; the club’s name and reputation are what motivated me to sign. I used to follow their important games and have always been a fan of club legend Mohamed Nour,” Kahraba said.
“I don’t have any disputes with Zamalek coach Mohamed Helmy- this isn’t the reason for my departure. I signed for Ittihad willingly; it was my choice to join the club,” he added.
“I will try to do my best to help the club win every trophy next season.
“I don’t consider my time at Switzerland as a failure; I left as the team’s top scorer with seven goals despite not playing regularly,” he explained.
