Nagy on risky decision to include El-Hadary in Egypt’s squad for 2017 AFCON
Ahmed El-Shennawy was the staff’s first choice during the championship, however, he was injured in Egypt’s first game and was replaced by the legendary goalie, who then led the Pharaohs to the final game against Cameroon.
“For one week Cuper tried to convince me not to start with El-Hadary in the African championship. He didn’t want to have a 44-year-old goalkeeper in this tournament,” Nagy said in radio comments.
“Cuper would ask me every day ‘Are you sure about his skills at this age?’ and I would assure him that he is ready.
“Cuper recently said that including El-Hadary was not his choice, he even thought I was crazy for taking this decision,” he added.
