“He [Azarou] is fast, skillful and a fighter. He serves around his teammate even if he is unlucky and didn’t score. He trains on his finishing as he is aware of what he’s missing ”

The 25-year old spoke about Ahly’s previous African strikers, runaway Souleymane Coulibaly and Malick Evouna who showed high potential and could have been destined for greatness at the red castle saying, “As for Coulibaly, from the players’ stories about him, he had abilities that Evouna didn’t have and he could have surpassed Flavio Amado sensational spell with the club,”

“Evouna has special abilities as he doesn’t joke around when it comes to finishing chances on target.”

Coulibaly had fled from Al Ahly in June after travelling to London without permission, he later justified his trip by claiming he was visiting family but Al Ahly lodged a complaint to FIFA against the player as well as refusing the player’s return, leaving him unemployed till the end of his contract.

Youssef Wael is a massive Al Ahly and Manchester United supporter from Cairo, Egypt. One of the few Egyptians who never really wanted to have a career in football, just played it as a hobby. Wael also played squash for 7 years.
