Steve Bruce says he’s expecting “big things” from Ahmed Elmohamady as he backed the winger to provide plenty of chances for his strikers.
There’s no question that scoring goals has been an issue for the claret and blues in the past but Bruce thinks that Elmohamady can help the forwards to fire with his expert delivery from wide positions.
Bruce is a huge fan of the Egyptian and is delighted that Elmohamady is “excited for the challenge” of helping us attempt to gain promotion back to the Premier League.
I am expecting big things from Ahmed. He knows that.
He said: “He’s been with me for the best part of six years.
“I don’t think he’s missed a training session. I don’t think he’s missed a game. So you can rely on him.
“And the one thing he wants to do is put the ball in the box and cross it.
“When we’re talking about our weaknesses away from home, we have to improve with the goals.
“I think his input will be good. We have already seen it. He certainly will put the ball in the box.
“I am expecting big things from Ahmed. He knows that. He’s excited for the challenge ahead.”
