Bassem Morsi admits mistakes with Egypt national team
Zamalek striker Bassem Morsi has admitted that he made mistakes during his time with the Egyptian national team.
During a televised interview with Egypt manager Hector Cuper, Morsi apologised and admitted his mistakes during the Pharaohs’ encounter with Ghana in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, which resulted in his exclusion from Egypt squad.
“I gain experiences as I get older, now I am more mature and experienced,” Morsi said.
“I don’t want to talk about what happened in the past. I had made mistakes and now I just focus on my football as I now train day and night.”
In response, the Argentine manager expressed his appreciation to Morsi’s apology. “It’s great that people admit their mistakes and I’m really happy of what he [Morsi] said.”
“It wasn’t a big deal to begin with, and that is what we want to make clear to everyone. The door is always open for him to return to the national team.
“There is no problem with him or any other player in the team, he will be welcomed back when he is back to his top form in the upcoming league fixtures,” Cuper added.
Morsi’s comments came one day after Egypt qualified to the World Cup for the first time since 1990, after beating Congo in a dramatic encounter at Alexandria’s Borg El-Arab Stadium.
