Ahmed Elmohamady: Everything has changed at Hull City
Egypt international Ahmed Elmohamady spoke about the new changes that happened to the team since he left for the 2017 African Cup of Nations in Gabon in January.
As Elmohamady went on an African quest with the Pharaohs and reached the tournament’s final match, a changeover happened in Hull after the team’s coach Mike Phelan was sacked because of poor results and former Sporting Lisbon and Olympiacos manager Marco Silva replaced him.
“Everything has changed. A new manager, seven new players, and some players have gone,” said the 29-year-old player. “We had the week in Portugal with everyone together and that was good to see the manager’s systems. It’s different to before.”
Silva managed to earn eight points from six games in the English Premier League and gave hope for the club that is trying hard to escape the bottom three, as they’ve remained there since mid-October.
“To be honest, everyone looks comfortable. There’s a lot of confidence at the minute. Hopefully that will help us push up the table,” he added.
Elmohamady had his first start with the team against Burnley and played for 90 minutes for the first time since leaving to Gabon. He thinks that the new coach gave players hope and is pushing them to avoid relegation.
“The results we’ve had in the last month have given the players, the fans, and people around the club confidence to stay positive and look forward to games. Hopefully that will keep us in the Premier League,” he concluded.
