Trezeguet on loan: I wanted playing time


Mahmoud Hassan ‘Trezeguet’ discussed his recent loan move to , and underlined his desire to succeed in Belgium.

Despite his impressive preseason with Anderlecht; club officials decided to loan the youngster to Excel Mouscron for the season, after signing several attacking players in the summer.

“From the beginning of the season, I wanted playing time. I understood that at Anderlecht, it would be difficult to play. Thanks to Mr. Van Holsbeeck, I was able to go on loan to Mouscron,” Trezeguet said.

“I do not really know why it did not work [at Anderlecht]. I did not feel it was my fault. I was at a club that were crowned champions of Egypt three times [Al Ahly]. I played every game.

“I came to Europe to continue my momentum and improve. Unfortunately I have not had the desired playing time. I have to play to continue to be called up to the national team. This year, I definitely want to win the Africa Cup of Nations with Egypt,” he added.

“I have learned a lot, despite not playing much. I sincerely believe that the Belgian championship is a good springboard that would help me move to a bigger league,” Trezeguet concluded.

Trezeguet scored in a 1-1 draw against Guinea last week, and featured in Egypt’s 1-0 loss to South Africa in the 2016 Nelson Mandela Challenge.

A medical student who loves football. Any free time I have is usually dedicated to football. I support Al Ahly and Real Madrid (Al Ahly comes first of course). Contrary to popular belief, I believe that females enjoy football as much as males do; I am a living proof :D Proud that I am writing for King Fut.
