Obama: I played because of my mother’s wishes
On loan from Zamalek, Obama won the game for Ittihad of Alexandria in stoppage time and immediately broke into tears. He learned of his mother’s passing only hours before the game, but he insisted on playing.
After the match, Obama remarked, “I learned of my mother’s death only hours before the game, but I insisted on playing with my team.”
The talented youngster continued, “I wanted to follow my mother’s wishes not to leave my team for any reason. This is why I decided to play and not go to the funeral.”
