After bidding farewell to Vera Park two weeks ago, the former Egyptian captain opened his heart to his future.
Despite reports that he was related to the transfer to Al Ahli, former Aston Villa defender Ahmed Elmohamadi revealed his intention to continue his career in the Premier League.
The 33-year-old is currently a free agent because Dean Smith’s team failed to sign a new contract with him before the four-year contract expires.
Elmohamady has been playing in England since 2010. He initially left the Egyptian club ENPPI, on loan to Sunderland for a season, and then on a permanent loan in June 2011.
The Egypt international is a member of the Aston Villa team. He returned to the Premier League in 2019. He is satisfied with his time at Villa Park, although he is limited to 14 Premier League games in the 2020-21 season. .
“My contract with Aston Villa is over. I have played four successful seasons with the team and I am very satisfied with the time spent with them,” Elmer Hamadi said Jingfu.
“In the beginning, I spoke and revealed that I supported Al Ahly, so when some news indicated that I was returning to Egypt, my name was again associated with Al Ahly.
“Al Ahli is a big club with great fans, and their name is well known in the football world.
“My goal is to retire in England. After my career at Aston Villa is over, I will take time to think about the future and choose the best for me and my family.
“I have received several offers and will continue my career in the Premier League.
“After I retired, Aston Villa also told me to become a coach and technician.”
Although he has not won any trophies in England, Elmo Hamadi is a member of the Hull City team and lost 4-3 to Arsenal in the 2013-14 FA Cup final. He also participated in the 2019- 20 League Cup final, as Aston Villa suffered a 2-1 defeat to Manchester City.
He won two African Cups of Nations in Egypt (2008, 2010), and he was recently replaced by Liveprool’s Mohamed Salah as the captain of the Egyptian national team.
