Hello from Nader
Hello every body
I would like to welcome you all to my first blog, it seems so much fun to share my every day life for two weeks with my fans. I have always been thinking about an idea which would keep me in touch with the football supporters and I could not find a better chance than the BBC World Service.
I am proud to be the first blogger. I want you all to know that it was not easy for me to learn English … it took a lot of hard work, lots of reading, lots of listening, and above all lots of interactions with native speakers. I know this might not be available for everybody but now the BBC World Service is trying to make it easy and available for any one who is willing to learn. I cannot say my English is perfect I am still working on it as much as I can. .
First I would like to introduce my self to you from the side which you don’t know, the family side. I am married 'happily of course’ … lol … with three wonderful kids, Judy, she is five, Ahmad, three, and finally Tamara, and she is almost two.
I met my wife 8 years ago, when I was doing a TV commercial and she was working in the advertising agency responsible for the event. It took us a couple of years to find out that we love each other. Once we reached that point we got married in a month … nine months later Judy was there.
Being with my family is the most enjoyable time I spend after football. I am trying my best to act like a good dad. I compensate my kids for not being home most of the time with lots of hugs and kisses and candy, I never miss a school party if I can, I try to drop my daughter to school as much as possible, I play football with my son and I take them out almost every week.
I would love to post some family photos next time.
If I am not with my family, I am in the club, as simple as that. Now I am in a camp getting ready for the match tomorrow with AL ITAHAD club. We won the league, we still have the cup to go for.
I did not play much this season, I cannot say I am not sad but I still think it was the correct decision to join Ahly. At that time of my career I can not refuse the chance of ending it in Ahly club.
I am trying to set an example of a professional player, who thinks of football as his job and not just his hobby, it is my job to wait for my turn - this has always been my attitude since I started playing, although I have never spent so much time out of the field in my life. I still think I might have the chance latter.
Now I got to go get dressed for the training, we will start in half an hour, it is so hot outside. I guess it is 35C or something but it is good for me as I have one kilogram that I got to sweat it out.
I would also be happy to respond to people - I have a great idea. If one of my fans send me his name or any note he likes, I would print it and take a photo of myself holding it and post it the next day… it will be so much fun.
Buy for now talk tomorrow.
