Al Ahly forward spoke about the prospects of renewing his contract with the Red Castle and his struggle to find a place in the team’s squad.

The veteran striker has been given limited time with Al Ahly over the past two seasons, and has been repeatedly excluded from the squad. He scored Al Ahly’s first goal in their 2-0 win over Arab Contractors on Sunday, few seconds after coming on as a second-half substitute.

“It’s been a historic season for me. For the first time in my career, I have been left out of the squad for nine games in addition to only playing a few minutes in 18 games in the league. This has never happened to me,” Meteb said during a televised interview.

The 34-year-old said that although he’s upset for not getting sufficient game time, he refrains from causing problems and instead focuses on looking for an opportunity to participate with the team.

“As long as I feel that I am able to play for 90 minutes, I will fight to get the opportunity,” he added.

Meteb, whose contract expires at the end of the season, is yet to receive a contract extension offer from Al Ahly board.

“I am waiting for Al Ahly’s decision first and then we’ll know whether I’ll renew for a season or two, or even leave,” Meteb revealed.

He added that he doesn’t want to renew his contract and end up getting paid without participating with the team.
