Atlético Madrid manager praised Egypt’s Mahmoud Abdel-Moniem ‘Kahraba’, in the aftermath of the Spanish team’s friendly win over Al Ittihad on Friday evening.

Atlético Madrid came back to defeat Al Ittihad 3-2 despite an excellent performance from Mahmoud Kahraba, in the Jeddah club’s 90th anniversary celebrations.

Speaking to the press after his side’s win, Argentine manager Diego Pablo Simeone had words of praise for the Egypt international, after the latter scored and assisted in the first half.

“I was impressed by the performances of some Ittihad players, led by the #10 [Kahraba], due to his impressive speed and skill,” Simeone enthused.

Kahraba was included in the prelimary 27-man Egypt squad named by Héctor Cúper, ahead of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.
