Our Egyptian winger is the latest member of the squad to face the Selector, where the player is tasked with placing six subjects into the categories first, last, best, worst, easiest and hardest…

Game. The first game I started was for Al-Mokawloon and I scored a goal. It was in Cairo, three years ago now. It finished 1-1 and we were playing against Ah-Ahly who are one of the biggest teams in Egypt. It was a great memory.

TV. I watch everything on Egyptian TV, I have it at home. I always watch Egyptian news channels so I can keep up to date with everything happening back home.

Opponent. Azpi is a good player and he always fights for the ball. I played against him last year, I have that experience and now I play with him. I also scored against him though when I was playing for Basel!

Music. To be honest I don’t really listen to music. (But Nemanja Music suggested you listen to music in the dressing room…) Yes but that’s not music, it’s Islamic but you can’t call it music. In fact, I cannot explain what it is!

Holiday. My favourite holiday is to Egypt, to my very small town. I think there are only 5,000 people there. When I’m there I like to be with my friends, I like to go outside and joke with all the people. I love it.

Training. When I came to Chelsea the first two weeks were difficult because it’s a different life, everything is difficult, and you are playing with some of the best players in the world for one of the biggest teams in the world. It wasn’t easy to train then, but it has got easier.
