I learned how to help the new players from the older generation in the past year. Hopefully, all the players will get their chance with the national team.” Elmohamady told ON Sport TV.
“Javier Aguirre chose me as the captain. Salah, Elneny, and Hegazy didn’t have any problems with the captaincy issue. If he chooses another captain I wouldn’t have any problems. The coaching staff is helping us as much as possible and they are doing a great job.” continued the national team captain.
