Phakamani Mahlambi has ‘no intention’ of leaving Al Ahly
Al Ahly winger Phakamani Mahlambi has confirmed he has no intention of leaving the club, adding that manager Hossam El-Badry is insisting on developing him.
The South Africa international has joined Al Ahly last summer from PSL outfit Bidvest Wits, but has endured a difficult start to life in Egypt.
Mahlambi has only managed to feature 12 times for the Red Devils, scoring once while assisting five times as the Cairo giants secured a third successive league title.
However, he started the club’s last two league games against ENPPI and Tanta, which Al Ahly managed to win both.
“I am happy to feature against Tanta because this means I am clearly in the technical staff’s interests,” Mahlambi told Al Ahly’s official website.
“I put in a lot of effort in the training and the matches to prove myself. The coach is always talking to me and is seriously seeking to guide me to reach my best.
“Hossam El-Badry told me more than once that he is insisting on developing my performances to benefit from my abilities,” he added.
The 20-year-old has dismissed the speculation over leaving the Red Castle, saying he enjoys playing at ‘Africa’s biggest club’.
“Recently I joined the national team as an Al Ahly player and I seek to represent the team in the upcoming period to prove my abilities,” he said.
“I have no intention of leaving Al Ahly. I enjoy playing at Africa’s biggest club and I am happy to be with my teammates and the fans.”
Al Ahly were confirmed as the Egyptian Premier League champions with six games to spare and will face Smouha SC in their next game on Sunday, April 8.
