Dolphin Goalie: War Drove Me To Nigeria
Posted: Jan 12, 2013
Dolphins’ Egyptian goalkeeper, Awgad Magd says war and crises are two factors that brought him to Nigeria and Dolphins.
Magd who holds dual nationality, Egyptian and Syrian, says he played in Syria until the war started and he knew he needed a fresh start.
“When the war started in Syria I knew I had to leave but I could not return to the League in Egypt because the crisis there had caused the league to be suspended so I had to call my manager to ask for options.
“My manager told me about Dolphins and Nigeria and said it was okay and I decided to come because Dolphins is a very big name in Egypt so it wasn’t long before I accepted after speaking with the coach, Stanley” (Eguma) Magd said.
To get the starting shirt in the team, Magd has to contend with Sunday Rotimi, Austin Brown and Akombo Terhimon, and he says it has been an exciting experience.
‘’ Rotimi and Brown are big names. I heard about them even before I came here and I learn from them every day, just like I am sure they learn from me. We all train hard together and I know it is for the good of the team eventually not any individual.
“I also listen to the coaches so I can learn. Dolphins have big coaches who have big experience and I am here to learn”, Magd said.
Awgad Magd started his career in the U15 team of Zamalek where he played for five years before moving to Syria.
He has also had stints in Bulgaria and Dubai before crossing down to Nigeria.
