Ahmed Elmohamady

Player #915 for Aston Villa, Ahmed Elmohamady, has played as a right back for the club since the 2017-18 Football League Championship campaign.

Elmohamady was born in Basyoun, Egypt on 9 September 1987.

Villa boss Steve Bruce had signed Elmohamady from Hull City for a fee of just £990,000 on 19 July 2017 at the age of 29 after having worked with Elmohamady at his previous clubs Sunderland and Hull City.

Ironically, Elmo made his competitive debut in the 1-1 home draw with his former club Hull City on Saturday, 5 August 2017.

Under Bruce’s regime Elmo immediately became a dependable fixture in the Villa first team making 45 appearances in his debut season as he helped Villa to a 4th placed finish in the Football League Championship and an ultimately unsuccessful appearance in the Championship play off final. Across the season Elmo contributed 5 assists as Villa went on to score 80 goals in all competitions.

During the 2018-19 Football League Championship season, Elmo continued to be a regular fixture under both Steve Bruce and his replacement Dean Smith making 42 appearances, creating 8 goals and scoring twice with his first coming in the opening Championship fixture away to his former club Hull City and his second coming to rescue a home draw for a struggling Villa against Reading.

Elmo’s influence throughout his first two seasons with Villa was capped by his run and cross for the opening goal in the Championship play off final victory over Derby County on Monday, 27 May 2019 that secured Villa’s return to the Premier League.

Elmo faced fresh competition in the squad for the 2019-20 Premier League campaign with the acquisition of Frédéric Guilbert however he still racked up 24 appearances, 3 assists and 2 goals across the season.

Elmo made his 100th appearance for Villa in the 5-0 EFL Quarter Final win over Liverpool on Tuesday, 17 December 2019 and made his FA Cup debut for Villa in the 2-1 3rd Round loss to Fulham on Saturday, 4 January 2020.

As he had in the play off final of the previous season, perhaps Elmo’s best moment came when he put in a sensational cross for Trézéguet to seal Villa’s place in their ninth league cup final - a move was typical of the Egyptian’s commitment to the Villa cause.

Elmo continued to be a key member of the Villa match-day squad during 2020-21 being regularly named as a substitute to provide the dependable security that he could always be depended upon to deliver however with newly arrived Matty Cash as Villa’s first choice right back, Elmo’s appearances were becoming more limited. By the end of 2020 Elmohamady had made 119 appearances for Villa, behind only team-mates Conor Hourihane (150) and Jack Grealish (201).
