Over the summer Brunos Magpies have had a major restructure at the club, last seasons ‘pub team’ have become this seasons title contenders with the team aiming for a top four finish or even promotion. One player who has stood since arriving in Gibraltar was Ahmed Elsahib. The winger had a great game against Europa Point followed by an outstanding performance against Cannons last Sunday. We caught up with Ahmed as he gave us an insight into his career and ambitions.
We started off with getting an idea of Ahmed’s background before coming to Gibraltar, “I was playing for Leyton Orient academy, unfortunately they did not give me a pro-contract so I continued my football journey in Gibraltar.”
Elsahib gave us an insight into how he got the call to come to GIbraltar and continue his football journey, “My representative in London told me about football in Gibraltar and how it’s a great opportunity so I took it and it’s been great so far, hoping to continue Sunday’s form for the rest of the season”
As we mentioned before Ahmed Elsahib had an outstanding performance on Sunday, scoring two goals, bagging two assists and was named MoTM, he reflected on how the game went, “I thought that today’s game was an all round great performance from the team and 4-0 gives us huge confidence for our next game. It’s always great to get on the score sheet and getting two goals and two assists was great, a bit gutted that I didn’t get my hat-trick but training harder will get me closer to my future goals.”
Elsahib added, “The game against Europa Point, I felt like the team’s performance was not how it usually is, especially my performance. They played well and managed to get the victory, the game did not get into our heads as we trained harder and kept our heads up and got a 4-0 victory last Sunday.”
Lastly, Elsahib gave us his ambitions for the upcoming season, “This season I hope to be top scorer in the league and move forward on my football career. I’d also like to help my teammates achieve their goals and carry Brunos to a promotion.”
Football Gibraltar would like to thank Ahmed Elsahib for his time and wish him the best of luck for the future.
