Egyptian international expressed his satisfaction after Basel’s win against Grasshoppers in gameweek 35 of the Swiss Super League.

Gaber played the 90 minutes as Basel beat Grasshoppers 3-1. Basel sealed their eighth straight Swiss Super League title a month ago. The team is on top of the table with 83 points while Grasshoppers are eighth with 38 points.

“I think it was a hard game for us since the weather was not so good,” the former player said. “We controlled the game from the beginning and were able to score in the first half.”

The player also won the Swiss Cup recently after a 3-0 victory over Sion. Mohamed Salah, Mohamed Elneny, and Ahmed Hamoudi have all failed to win the domestic cup with the Swiss giants, despite reaching the final in 2013, 2014, and 2015.

“Overall, we are happy and satisfied with the result. We still have one more game in the league and we have to stay focused till the end,” he concluded. Basel’s next match will be against FC St. Gallen on June 2.
