Galatasaray head coach Fatih Terim compared the debuts of Mostafa Mohamed to Romanian football legend Gheorghe Hagi as he said to be trusting the on loan Zamalek forward.
Since joining that Turkish side, Mohamed scored six goals in 11 appearances in the Super Lig.
The 23-year-old hits the ground running at his arrival and could have do better if he was not hampered by injuries and Covid-19.

And for Terim, the Pharaoh will be prominent for his side in this end of the season in their title race with Besiktas who tops the log actually with six points (75) clear of Galatasaray (69).
“When I first came to Galatasaray in 1996, we signed Hagi; and he scored two goals on his debut. We try to use whatever new signing we have in a correct, honest and proper manner. Mostafa is also a player we trust,” Terim said during the post-match press conference against Antalyaspor.
“He missed important matches. Maybe if he were there, maybe they would’ve been different,” he added.
