The 24-year-old midfielder made it clear that he will put his maximum effort in order to fight for his place.

“This is an honest competition and all players fight for places in the first team. This applies to me also, especially when you play for a big club like Arsenal,” he said.

“I want to do my best to be in the starting line-up and fight for my place,” he added.

Elneny stressed that he is always ready to play, whether he gets selected or not.

“I don’t have a problem if I start or not. I’m always focused and ready to play. I listen to the manager and I do my best during training,” he stated.

“Whether I play or not is up to the boss but I am always focused and ready to play. I don’t want to disappoint when I’m selected to play,” he pointed out.

The Egyptian International concluded his remarks by stating that the past 11 months were the best of his life.

“I think the past 11 months have been the best of my life and hopefully I will keep getting better and achieve big things with Arsenal,” he concluded.




Mohammed Salama is a 20-year-old who fell in love with football since Egypt's AFCON final match against Ivory Coast! Strangely enough an Al Ahly and Al Masry fan locally. In addition, he's a hardcore Bayern Munich supporter.
