Football team Hull City’s right-winger is to play for the Premier League once more, reported Egyptian media outlet al-Ahram on Friday.

Egyptian Ahmed Elmohamady is scheduled to start playing at Stamford Bridge, a football ground in the UK, on Sunday.

Hull City clambered back into the Premier League last season with Elmohamady leading the way, joined by compatriots Mohammed Gedo and Ahmed Fathy who won “player of the season” last year.

Elmohamady stated that he is proud of the Hull City’s achievement in being promoted into the Premier League.

“All the people in Egypt know about football in England…Everyone in Egypt thinks the Premier League is the best league in the world,” he said to UK-based The Independent.

“Everyone was glad to see the players get promoted, it was the first time in history some Egyptian players have helped a team in England get promoted into the Premier League. It was very good for the fans, and for the players,” Elmohamady told The Independent.

Hull City will face Norwich on Saturday.

“We’re now all looking forward to playing Norwich in our first home game. Our fans were great last season and we always felt like everything was fantastic whenever we played at home…Hopefully we can get three points on Saturday and make the fans happy,” the Egypt right-winger concluded.
