Walid Azarou speaks after first training session with Al Ahly
New summer signing Walid Azarou has expressed his happiness over participating in his first training session with Ahly on Monday.
Azarou confirmed that all procedures were completed and that all of his belongings are with him in Cairo, where he will be living to represent Al Ahly in the upcoming period.
“I was very happy with how the players welcomed me before the training session. It gave me a huge boost because of the good spirit between all the players,” Azarou expressed.
Hossam El-Badry met with Azarou before the training for a quick meeting, where he expressed his confidence in the striker’s ability.
“I believe that my first appearance for Ahly will be in the Arab Club Championship and I hope I can show by abilities. The environment here pushes the players to their best and I hope I can achieve that in the coming period,” Azarou continued.
“It is important for me to help Ahly win trophies before I think about any personal achievements such as the top scorer award. I know that there is a tough competition with the other strikers but I am ready for it and it will benefit the team.
“I watched the game against Coton Sport and saw how the fans supported the team and I hope I can be a source of their happiness along with my teammates,” he concluded.
It’s worth mentioning that Walid finished the 2016-17 campaign as the Moroccan league’s fourth top goal scorer with 12 goals, leading his side to the second place, which guaranteed them a place in the CAF Champions League next season.
