Mohamed Elneny is establishing himself as a firm fans’ favourite at the club.
The popular midfielder enjoys meeting supporters when he’s out and about - even if one did get a little close!
“Once, after one of our games, I was leaving the stadium,” Elneny told Arsenal Player. “There are usually some fans waiting to take pictures with players or get their autograph. So this guy opened the door and jumped in the car! It was a funny incident.
“When I go out, I see a lot of fans who of course recognise me because I play for Arsenal,” he added. “The whole of London supports Arsenal. So yes, I come across many fans who approach me and speak to me.
“If we had just lost a game, they would ask you to win the next one and if we won they say ‘well done’ and are happy. It makes me happy to interact with the fans like that and to speak to them.”
