Thank you for reading the news about New CF Montréal signing Ahmed Hamdi excited to work with Thierry Henry and now with the details
Dubai - Yasmine El Tohamy - New CF Montréal signing Ahmed Hamdi has expressed his eagerness to play under the leadership of Thierry Henry in the MLS.
A couple of days ago, MLS outfit CF Montréal announced the signing of El-Gouna midfielder Ahmed Hamdi on a season-long loan with an option to buy.
The 22-year-old has been playing at El-Gouna since January 2019 after joining them from Al Ahly, initially on loan, before the move was made permanent.
His performances have linked him with moves to Europe on more than one occasion, with Portugal’s Sporting Braga and Russian club Rubin Kazan submitting bids for him.
However; there were always complications in negotiations, and the deals never materialized, before he managed to achieve his dream and move abroad to play in the MLS for CF Montréal.
Speaking on the move, Hamdi said: “I have finalized my move to CF Montréal and will travel to Canada next week.
“CF Montréal is a big club with a huge fanbase. They had former Barcelona star Bojan Krkić and are being coached by French legend Thierry Henry.
“I thank El-Gouna’s board and officials for allowing me to realize my dream any play abroad.
“I will do everything I can in the upcoming period to participate in the Tokyo Olympics,” he added.
Hamdi has then sent a message of support to boyhood club Al Ahly ahead of their clash in the Club World Cup semi-final with Bayern Munich.
“I hope Al Ahly play a big game against Bayern Munich and honour Egyptian and African football. I wish I could be with them,” the playmaker said.
Hamdi will become the first-ever Egyptian to represent CF Montréal and the only second current Pharaoh in the MLS alongside Amro Tarek.
He will also become the second Egyptian to play for a Canadian club in the MLS after Aly Ghazal, who had a stint at Vancouver Whitecaps.
Current Pyramids FC defender Omar Gaber also had a short stint at Los Angeles FC in 2018.
