He added: “I feel great and excited to join such a great club with history. It is club with huge fans base. I am very to join the great team because I have a good friendship with Timo Boll who is a good person outside the table. I hope I can add my quality to the team and I hope to use my presence in the team to open doors for more Africans and Arabians to feature in the league,” concludes the Egyptian star player.
