“He’s a legend, he’s my No.1, he’s an idol, everything. I cannot celebrate against him, but this is something special for me. Since I was 10-years-old, I went with my friends and cheered for him at every tournament …
He [ElShorbagy] said to me to celebrate as I want, that it’s my time. I came here to enjoy myself, in front of my friends, in my country, in front of my city. To play this tournament is something unbelievable to me and to play against the World No.1, World No.2, World No.3, World No.5 is a dream come true.”
Mostafa Asal (EGY) beat Mohammed ElShorbagy (EGY) in the Squash PSA World Tour Finals, held in Egypt.
After the game, 20 year-old showed his respect to the Squash legend he grew up rooting for.
