Mohamed Elneny has spoken for the first time about his move to Arsenal claiming he knows ‘everything’ about the club and its players.
Eager to make his mark at the Emirates the 23-year-old, who put pen-to-paper on a long-term deal this morning and could be included in Arsene Wenger’s squad for Sunday’s game with Stoke, outlined his aims for the rest of the season.
“It is an indescribable feeling [to join Arsenal], I am really glad of course,” he told Arsenal Player.
“Arsenal is one of the world’s greatest teams, and I am very keen to participate positively with my new team, God willing, and to give my best for the team and for myself.
“Arsenal is one of those teams that everyone enjoys watching and of course I would love to play for such a great team.”
Elneny also reserved special praise for his new coach, adding: “Mr Wenger is a highly respected manager and one of the world’s best managers. It is my honour to be trained under his management.
“It is one the biggest clubs in the world, I know everything about it and its players.
“I would like to tell [the fans] that, although you have not seen much of me, I promise I will contribute positively with the team. I am hoping that we win the Premier League and cup this season, and the Champions League as well.”
He’s making all the right noises so far. All we need is a crunching tackle on Charlie Adam on Sunday and a last minute winner and he may secure cult status in double quick time.
