has spoken about his favourite type of music, his football idol and what he hopes to achieve this season with Greek side PAOK.

Warda has participated in 9 games for PAOK this term but has yet to register any goals or assists to his name in the Greek league or the Europa League. He had scored the equaliser for his team against Benfica in the Champions League playoffs in Portugal but it wasn’t sufficient to prevent them from crashing out of the preliminary rounds.

In an interview with Dugout, the 25-year-old winger disclosed about the teammates he appreciates the most at PAOK and the objectives he aims to reach this season.

“We always listen to Greek music, techno and Egyptian music. We enjoy life here because we are like a family at PAOK; the players, the fans and the management, we have a strong relationship between one another,” Warda said.

“My role model growing up? Zola. I think he is the best player in Chelsea’s history, he was magnificent. For me, Zidane comes after Zola.”

“We are one family, here we have Omar El Kaddouri, Dimitris Pelkas, Aleksander Prijovic and Mauricio. We have a good team.”

“My best moment this season when I scored against Benfica. However we lost in the return game despite having the faith in our ability to reach the Champions League group stage. We have added four-five new players and we hope they can help us especially since we lost the league last season. I think we are on track to have a good season to make the fans and the entire city happy.”
