VIDEO: El-Nenny begins trial with Mohamed Salah’s FC Basel
The 21-year-old defensive midfielder headed to Switzerland after featuring in Egypt’s 3-0 friendly loss to Ghana in the United Arab Emirates on Thursday.
FC Basel coach Murat Yakin praised El-Nenny before the Egypt international joined the squad’s training camp, telling Swiss media on Saturday, “What we’ve seen of him has impressed us.”
Former Arab Contractors teammate Mohamed Salah also joined Basel on trial last year, before signing with the club on a 4-year-deal in the summer.
Murat Yakin’s side are set to play three friendlies in Estepona, Spain against Steaua Bucharest, Ferencvaros and Dinamo Kiev.
