Al-Arab in UK (AUK) platform chose Egyptian star and Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny as their top Arab athlete in the UK for the year 2023.
The decision was made due to several factors, such as the player’s good reputation, his engagement with the Arab community in the UK, and his presence on social media, which occasionally expresses his pride in his mother tongue Arabic.
Elneny will receive the award at the annual Gala Dinner organized by AUK on the 17th of March 2023.
