The father of Arsenal midfielder, Mohamed Elneny’s discovered a dead body in his son’s residence located in Gharbia Governorate in Egypt.
The house which is located in the Egyptian city of El Mahalla El Kubra, is still under construction and the 25-year-old Arsenal midfielder does not stay there.
His father, Naser Elneny, found the body ‘in the patio’ and informed police immediately, who have started working to identify the victim and the cause of his death.
“My son Mohamed has villa in the city of Mahalla, 123 kilometers north of Cairo, but no one lives there.” the father told CNN.
“I was heading to the villa, to make some repairs to become the head office of a charity to serve the people of Mahalla, but I found the body of the deceased man holding the electricity wire so I called the police.”
The report further stated that the friends of the deceased youth, who were registered on his phone, are all held in custody and have already been charged in many cases.
The father revealed how he assured his son, Mohamed to “calm down, nothing happened and the case finished”.
After representing Egypt at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, where he played four matches before their Round of 16 exit, Elneny is yet to return to Arsenal for pre-season training.
Eleny was missing in action on Sunday as Unai Emery’s side bowed to a 2-1 defeat to Lyon at the Emirates Stadium.
