The winger is demanding explanation from the Egypt coach for dropping him for the Black Stars game on November 19 since “everybody performed badly in the away leg, even Bradley"

Hull City wide man Ahmed Elmohamady has launched a stinging attack on coach Bob Bradley for dropping him from the Egypt squad to face Ghana in the World Cup second-leg play-off.

The winger claimed everyone should share the blame for that humiliating defeat in Kumasi and should not be used as a scapegoat.

“I can't understand why I have been dropped. Everybody performed badly in the away leg, even Bradley himself,” Elmohamady told an Egyptian TV show on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old, a regular starter for Steve Bruce's side, has been a consistent figure for the Pharaohs since 2007 helping them to win the 2008 and 2010 Africa Cup of Nations.

Meanwhile, Elmohamady has denied circulating rumors that a burst-up with inspirational midfielder Mohamed Abou-Treika might have sparked his exclusion.

“Everybody was talking about a dispute with Abou-Treika, but that never happened. We all left the pitch in silence after the game.

“I play regularly with Hull City in the strongest league in the world. It is the first time I have been dropped since 2007, and I am waiting for an explanation from the head coach,” he fumed.
