    China instead of Porto? Porto is known to be the current best producer of talent for the biggest clubs in the world and have launched many great careers, but he chooses China? Enjoy the blistering cold and the downright racism along with never being called up to the national team again. Bye and stay there.

      That is based on your 100% sure info about Porto trying to buy him? Ghazal is a good CDM, but not good enough to go play for Porto and launch a great career from there. He is good enough to be called for the national team, but was introduced through a stupid coach called Gharib, who basically played him in the worst possible way for him to perform. Add to this the fact that our stupid sports medias slayed him as if his performance was the reason behind our national team abysmal performances under Gharib.

      Otherwise Ghazal got more heart and professionalism that about 95% of the Egyptian players. Guy left Degla on his own initiative and actually started the Egyptians to Portugal trend. A handful of names imitated him and funny enough, the only guy left there is Koka. All the rest including the likes of Gomaa came back with their tails between their legs.

      Ghazal realised he would not play for a top team and succumbed to what is probably an unmatchable contract offer for a player playing for Nacional. We could also make a pretty safe bet that Nacional who are a team struggling with money were also very happy to push him towards that deal if the money they got for it is good

    He preferred money to a brilliant career. Understandable, a career is short and he needs to get a maximum of dough. He had potentiel.
