Essam Al-Hadari, the Ismaili goalkeeper, revealed the main reason for his decision to retire from international football during the previous period.
Essam Al-Hadari retired internationally after the 2018 World Cup, becoming the biggest player in the World Cup.
"I hope there is Abdullah Al-Saeed in the Egyptian team, Walid Sulaiman, Mohamed Abdel Shafi and Ahmed Fathi," Essam Al-Hadari said in an interview with Al-Luaib television broadcast on MBC Egypt.
"I have never thought about the player's age for the rest of my life," he said. "Next time you want to rely on experience and youth."
"I have not set my future after retirement," he continued. "I could be a technical manager, a goalkeeping coach or a football manager."
"I am learning from Italian Gianluigi Buffon, although he is younger than me and when he announced his retirement from Italy, he made the same decision and implemented it after the World Cup."
"I do not know the meaning of the loss," he said. "I am saddened if I score a goal in my lap, even in training, and I am afraid of any striker, not a certain player."
He continued: "I was challenging Mohammed Abu Trika, Mohammed Barakat and Amado Flavio in the training Ahli, and challenged Mohammed Salah, the Liverpool player in the main training before the match Congo, and responded to 3 penalty kick.
Egypt had qualified for the 2018 African Cup of Nations after defeating Congo in the World Cup qualifier match, which Mohammed Salah scored at the Burj Al Arab Stadium.
"I did not think of my life calling my name on a street, and what I'm doing now is what will make people remember the urban name after retirement and all that I got into thinking about in my childhood."
The former Egyptian goalkeeper concluded: "I will dance on the bar after retirement."
