Former Tottenham forward, Mido, has taken to Twitter to admit he was wrong about Mohamed Elneny after the Egyptian impressed in recent games.

“I followed the last three games of Arsenal and the last two team games from the stadium, and I have to admit that I was wrong about Elneny,” Mido tweeted.

Mido played for Tottenham for three years, scoring 20 goals in 63 appearances. He made more appearances for Tottenham than any of his other 11 clubs. He retired in 2013, aged just 30. Since then, he has managed four clubs, including Zamalek twice and had a stint as their Youth Director.

“I am impressed by the level he has been playing in the recent period where he became an indispensable player in the Egyptian team. Congratulations to our player on renewing his contract with Arsenal.”

Elneny was voted Arsenal’s Player of the Month for January and recently signed a new deal that will tie him to the club until 2022

The 25-year-old is an understated but important squad player for Arsenal.

His happy-go-lucky nature fits in well at the club while he is a consistent 7 whenever he plays, sometimes brilliant, sometimes awful, generally just dependable and competent.

I think it’s safe to say that Mido isn’t the only one who has been proven wrong about the 25-year-old, who is likely to improve even more over the next few seasons.
