Elneny: I am happy that Al Ahly rejected me
The 24-year-old started his career with Egypt’s giants Al Ahly, before the Red Devils released him to join Arab Contractors, where he caught the eye of Swiss side FC Basel.
“They [ Al Ahly ] told me that I am not good enough,” Elneny answered when he was asked about why did Al Ahly release him.
“I am happy that I got rejected, I might have not been at Arsenal if I wasn’t.
“My father was very upset, but I told him that I will make him proud,” Elneny added.
