Egyptians in Europe – Why Mohamed Salah is a game-changer?
Throughout this article, KingFut editor Omar Niyazi examines past superstars of Egyptian football, their ventures into the depths of European football and where it all went wrong.
Egypt, seven time African Cup of Nations winner, dominators of continental championships, producers of prodigal talents. There is no doubting that the Egyptian system has had, and still does have the potential to produce some of the best players in the world. From players like Hany Ramzy back in the 1990s to Mido, Amr Zaki and Mohamed Zidan in more recent times, Egyptians have been trying to ply their trade in the world’s top leagues for years, with mixed results. Poor discipline, struggles to maintain adequate levels of fitness and inability to adapt to playing styles of their respective clubs and leagues, there have been various problems that have plagued these potential stars of the game. However, the game is changing. And the game changer, Mohamed Salah, is leading the way, lighting up the path, proving that with raw ability plus sheer determination, Egypt has the potential to be creating some of the most exciting and consistent players in Europe’s top leagues.
