From the Old Cairo district, and its origins extending to the center of the row in Giza, Al-Ahly club found its destination after lean years, in search of a striker who is not afraid of the goal.
The Al-Ahly club administration did not know when it bought the 21-year-old right-winger Mohamed Sherif from Wadi Degla in 2018, that he would be the first team striker, and the top scorer in the Egyptian League and the African Champions League in one season, or that he would top the list of top scorers in the Egyptian League in the third millennium.
In this data-driven story, “Yalla Koura” reveals how Mohamed Sharif etched his name in the list of top scorers in Egypt and Al-Ahly Club, since the beginning of the journey until now, by analyzing the data published on the Transfer Market website, which specializes in tracking the career path of clubs and football players in all countries the scientist.
Through small plastic balls, the father discovered the talent of his son Muhammad from an early age. He was surprised when he found a young child kicking the ball with his two feet with the same skill, so he decided to take care of himself with that talent.
He takes him daily to a garden near the house and passes the ball to him, directs him to receive it with one foot and kick it with the other, and he gets into quarrels with his mother, who was afraid that he would focus on football and neglect his studies.
But the result was the production of a young player, who moved between the clubs of Dina Farms and the Tigris Valley. The coaches took advantage of him in all positions in the stadium, due to his mastery of playing with the feet with the same skill. Right wing.
The major Egyptian clubs began to hint at a good player, and with the start of the winter transfer season of 2018, Sharif received a phone call from his agent at the beginning of January, informing him of an offer from Zamalek club.
Sharif decided to accept the offer, to take a bigger step in his football career, and actually signed for Zamalek, but the club itself retreated after finding the compass of Al-Ahly club heading towards Mohamed Antar, player of the Pyramids club, so Zamalek decided to intervene and kidnap Antar, and postponed the Mohamed Sharif deal indefinitely. named.
At the end of the same month, after completing the Zamalek deal with Antar, Mohamed Sharif received a new phone call from his agent, telling him of Al-Ahly’s desire to include him after the failure of the Antar deal. A match in his life out of overthinking, so he ended the match, and signed with Al-Ahly at dawn on January 31, 2018.
But over the course of a year and a few months, Sharif was unable to reserve a seat for himself in the Al-Ahly club’s basic formation, and with the succession of technical managers, hope began to fade little by little, so the young player asked Al-Ahly to go out on loan so that he could play basic and prove himself.
Al-Ahly club management responded to his desire at the end of August 2019, to join Enppi Club. There, the coach, Captain Helmy Tolan, decided to hire him as an outspoken striker, so Sharif appeared in a new way, making Al-Ahly club decide to end his loan after one year and two months.
Sharif returned to Al-Ahly, and began to take advantage of half-opportunities to prove himself. His goals doubled over the seasons as if he were competing with himself, and he was able to raise his scoring rate 11 times more than his first season in Egyptian stadiums.
Sherif began infiltrating the basic formation of Al-Ahly club day after day, until Al-Ahly club included the African striker Walter Bwalya in January 2021. The current Al-Ahly coach, Pitso Mosimane, of South Africa, decided to give him the full opportunity, and to oblige Sharif to the bench again.
At a time when Walter Bwalya did not achieve the desired goals, Muhammad Sharif became the golden alternative, which Pitso Mosimane pushed to save the situation in the last minutes. He succeeded in making his participation an essential requirement for the fans of Al-Ahly club, and the talk of all sports television programs, including a telephone intervention between him and the parliamentarian, and the former captain of the Al-Ahly club, Hossam Ghaly, during which he told him to continue training well, and that the full opportunity is inevitably coming..
