Ahmed Hamoudi: My performances will improve with time
Ahmed Hamoudi has talked about how he adapted with his new team, Al-Batin, and his plans on improving even more as he gets match fit.
Ahmed Hamoudi has talked to the press after his debut with Al-Batin in which he came on as a substitute in the 71st minute and managed to bag an assist to break the deadlock and make it 1-0 against Al-Taawoun in the round of 16 of the Saudi Crown Prince Cup.
Hamoudi began his talk by praising the team and their efforts which resulted in the victory and then said: “I’ve been with the team for a week and they didn’t make me feel like an outsider, the whole managerial staff are no strangers to me.”
When asked whether his match fitness was the reason for not starting the match Hamoudi commented: “It’s been a while since I last played and that’s what I told the coaches.
“I’ve been working for a week now, but I’m still not 100% match fit. With time my performances will improve as my fitness improves as well.”
Hamoudi will be playing against his compatriot Mahmoud Abdel-Moneim Kahraba in the next stage of the Saudi Crown Prince Cup, after Kaharba’s side, Ittihad Jeddah, defeated Al-Qadisiyah and advanced to face Al-Batin in the quarter-final.
The former Basel and Zamalek man joined Al-Batin earlier this month after terminating his contract with FC Basel. It’s worth noting that Al Batin, who are managed by former Al Ahly Egypt player Adel Abdelrahman, were promoted to the Saudi Pro League last season despite finishing third in the second division after the relegation of league champions Al-Mojzel over match fixing.
