Welcome back!

Hossam Ghaly is on his way back to Tottenham to re-unite with teammate Mido after he was unceremoniously booted out of Birmingham City after a major bust up with manager Steve Bruce.

I don’t ever recall anything like this. Ghaly is also the player that once threw his shirt on the ground at Martin Jol's feet after being substituted.

The transfer was subject to a work permit which technically still made Ghaly a Spurs player. Bruce took advantage of that loophole, and an embarrassed Tottenham issued a statement claiming it was Ghaly’s decision to return to the club.

Apparently Ghaly ridiculed the ability of his new teammates. Bruce confirmed the player demonstrated an unacceptable attitude during training, he received the full backing of the board to boot him out.

The source of the problem was that Ghaly was asked to do extra running in a one-on-one session with a fitness coach since he had not trained regularly lately. Ghaly complained.
Then Bruce received a message from Ghaly’s agent saying he wasn’t happy with the standard of the players. Bruce was quoted as saying:

"I couldn't believe what I was hearing - and I've kept the message on my voicemail”

Then, Ghaly whined about the extra running, Bruce again:

"When he had his one-to-one session with Dan, he was moaning we 'don't do this, don't do that' at Tottenham, it 'wasn't right' and 'ridiculous'. He had a right petted lip on. Yes, strong words were said and he was told in no uncertain terms that if he didn't like it, he should clear off”


"I've had this before with a former captain [Kenny Cunningham] complaining about all sorts and I'm not going to keep fighting things like that. Yes, we train our players hard and we expect them to put the work in.”

What I find hilarious about this guys arrogance is that he was nothing more than a Tottenham reserve and he comes into a new club comparing them. Are you kidding? At least get a first team place before you say anything.

Unfortunately for Tottenham, they are now stuck with a pair of deadweights, and Ghaly, showing what he is all about (basically lazy) is less than likely to attract a new suitor.

His fine moment:

i think he is a good player, maybe not the best attitude but at least he has a bit of fight about him.
saying things about his new(ex) team mates is definitely off though, if it's true.

Maybe MJ is related to Lord Caernarvon or Carter. It's Tutankhamun's curse or the mummy's revenge. Didn't we have a problem with gyppy tummy. Did Ghaly's mum make the lasagne.
