"First of all I have a fighting mentality and I battle for my team. As a player I am a tall striker, a box striker and I've scored a good number of goals in my career. It is good that the trainer knows you from before, but I am not depending on that. They are expecting a lot of me here and I will have to do a lot of work to reach this and make myself proud. My first impression is that it is a very organised club with very good management," said Mido.
Mounir said, "The fact Martin is here is important because I know him. He's very well thought of in Holland and it will be easy for me to talk to him. I also know Noureddine Naybet because I will play for Morocco. He's a great player and it's nice to know he's here as well. I'm not going to put pressure on myself. I will do my best on the training pitch and see where that takes me."
