Mido admits he would love to manage Ajax one day
Former Ajax forward and current Wadi Degla manager Mido has revealed his hopes of managing Ajax, adding that he replicates the style of the Dutch side in Egypt.
Ahmed Hossam Mido played for the Dutch giants from 2001 to 2003, before returning on loan in 2010, scoring 26 goals in 63 appearances for them. The Egyptian lift two Eredivisie titles in 2002 and 2011, and the KNVB Cup in 2002.
“My first period at Ajax was very good. We won the title and had a very nice and young team,” Ahmed Hossam told Ajax1.
“When I returned to Ajax in 2010, I did my utmost. I didn’t get much play time, but when I was allowed to play I scored and worked hard. When Martin Jol left, I knew it was the time for me to leave too.
“The team eventually won the title and I think my goals were important. I was invited by Ajax for their last match but couldn’t come. I’ll count the title in my trophies list,” he added.
The 34-year-old was asked about his best moment in an Ajax shirt and he replied: “That was winning the league title in my first year. It was a really great season with that young team.
“I watched a couple of the team training sessions when Frank de Boer was the club’s manager and when I became a manager myself I replicated the Ajax style.
“I started coaching three years ago. I won the Egyptian cup with Zamalek as the youngest Egyptian manager ever. I hope to come to the Netherlands to continue my managerial career there. It would be very nice to manage Ajax,” Mido concluded.
