Ahmed Elmohamady says helping Aston Villa to Premier League promotion was an “unbelievable” personal achievement in his career – and now he’s keen to help establish us there.
Elmohamady today put pen to paper on a one-year deal to extend his claret and blue contract.
He’s proud to continue his adventure and he wants nothing more than to help the club thrive back in the big time.
He told Club TV: “I am absolutely delighted to extend my contract. Playing for Aston Villa is unbelievable.
“It’s a great club and the fans are unbelievable. I am looking forward to continuing my stay here.
“When I came here the main thing was to get back into the Premier League.
“I had a first difficult season because we didn’t go up. But we did it last year.
“The Championship is the most difficult league in the world to get out of. But we had a successful year. We want another now.
“It’s been a difficult start. I think we played really well in the last two games. But sometimes we are unlucky with some mistakes.
“But if we continue playing well the luck will come.
“The Premier League is always a big league – the best in the world.
“Our main target is to finish as high in the table as possible and be in the Premier League.
“In the summer, we had new players coming in, who have had to settle in the club, it will take time.
“Some boys have played in this league before. For some of them, it’s new. Hopefully they can settle quick and we can get going.”
