Mohamed Elneny’s father Nasser is confident his son has the necessary qualities to become Arsenal coach in future.

Elneny, 30, is set for his eighth season with the Gunners having agreed a one-year contract extension and his father believes the Egypt midfielder has what it takes to succeed in the dugout, once his playing career is over.

Nasser told MBC Egypt as quoted by Joe:

I was sure that Elneny would continue with Arsenal, and I told him that, even though everyone in Egypt was saying that he would leave the team this summer.

The Arsenal players love Elneny, he is loved among his colleagues in the dressing room, and the club’s management loves him, so I think he will coach Arsenal in the future.

I tell Elneny that I am proud of you, you made me hold my head, whether because of your performance with the Egyptian national team or with Arsenal.

I do not think that there is a player who was able to play in Arsenal for eight seasons, and I say to Mohamed Salah that you are the best player in the world and the pride of Egypt.

Elneny joined Arsenal in January 2016 from Swiss side Basel, becoming the first Egyptian to play for the Gunners.
