Since buying Mohamed Elneny in the January transfer window, no one could have predicted the impact he’d have on the team; no one except Mo, that is.
Having a defensive midfielder who can actually pass and do his job at the same time has been a revelation, which is a little sad but we’ll roll with it. His partnership with Coquelin has been sound and everyone’s excited to see how he’ll play when Aaron Ramsey is introduced properly.
Speaking recently, the 23-year-old admitted that he always knew he could adapt to the intensity of the Premier League.
“I was [able to settle] because God helped give me the strength to adapt to my situation,” he said.
“Some said I would find it hard to adapt to the physicality of the Premier League but I thought otherwise.
“I even told my agent to give me three weeks to show him how well I could adapt. I know I can adapt to all kinds of people and every league I play in.”
It’s good that Mo seems confident but also grateful for the opportunity to play for us. When he first signed he said it was a dream come true and now that he’s become a regular name on the team sheet he must be over the moon. Hopefully, he can continue to develop and bed into the team.
