“I do not really know why it did not work [at Anderlecht]. I did not feel it was my fault. I was at a club that were crowned champions of three times []. I played every game.

“I came to Europe to continue my momentum and improve. Unfortunately I have not had the desired playing time. I have to play to continue to be called up to the national team. This year, I definitely want to win the Africa Cup of Nations with Egypt,” he added.
