    Omar Gaber has been a hard worker and very consistent in outstanding performance. Unfortunately for the National
    Team, we have Fathi and el
    Mohammady however I think we can utilize Omar at a left back or even in center field. He’s quick with his feet and seems to always make smart decisions with the ball. When bob Bradley was coach of Egypt, Omar was exciting to watch especially when we played Chile. His assist to salah was golden.
