“If I return it will be hard for me to play for any club other than Zamalek or Ismaily. I can’t play for Al Ahly. I am a Zamalek fan and was the team’s youngest captain,” he added. “One day I will become Zamalek’s president.”

He said that he plans to finish his career playing in Zamalek for one year without getting paid any amount of money because of his love to the club.

In addition to being a hardcore football fan, Abdelrahman is a communications enthusiast who works in marketing, advertising, content creation and PR.
