Egypt goalkeeping coach surprised by Gennesh, El-Shennawy criticism
Mahmoud Gennesh and Mohamed El-Shennawy are seen as the best goalkeeping options for the Egyptian national team. However, the Zamalek and Al Ahly goalkeepers have been criticized lately due to their many mistakes.
Nagy defended these goalkeepers and also talked about the other goalkeeping options in the Egyptian Premier League.
“We follow all goalkeepers in the league, lately Amer Amer has been on our radar,” he told ONSport radio station.
“I’m in constant contact with Mohamed El-Shennawy and Mahmoud Gennesh, I’m surprised by the negative energy surrounding the players.
“All goalkeepers make mistakes, it’s common for a goalkeeper to make mistakes, El-Shennawy was the man of the match during the Uruguay game in the World Cup. As such, El-Hadary played and shined against Saudi Arabia as a 45-year-old.
“It is very possible for us to call-up fresh faces, Amer Amer has been performing very well lately.”
Egypt national team are set to face Niger in the upcoming international break in the 2019 AFCON set to take place in Egypt on March 22. Then they’ll face Nigeria in a friendly on March 26.
