Kahraba: Fans are the reason behind my performance
Al-Ittihad winger Mahmoud Kahraba spoke about his team’s big win against Al-Ettifaq in gameweek 11 of the Saudi Professional League.
Kahraba scored a brace in his team 4-1 victory over sixth-placed Al-Ettifaq and he is now the second top league goal scorer with six goals, five goals behind Al-Ahli forward Omar Al-Somah.
‘‘Firstly, I thank god for the win and the two goals I scored today. I also want to thank our fans who were always behind the team and supported us till the last second,’’ the Egyptian said in post-match interview.
When asked about the reason of his recent superb performances, Kahraba said: ‘‘ I urged the fans to get behind the team whatever the results are and that is what happened. The fans are the reason why every player gives everything on the pitch.’’
About his first goal celebration, he responded: ‘‘ Tarek is my friend. When I visited the special care center, I got a very warm reception from him and he sang to me. As I promised before, I invited Tarek to the match and told him if I scored, I would celebrate the goal with him,’’ he concluded.
