Elmohamady making history in Hull City
Three and a half years after his first, Saturday brought up a 100th Premier League start for Hull City. Only Tom Huddlestone (86) and Curtis Davies (83) are even close to such a haul but it is the Egyptian who will forever hold the honor of becoming the Tigers’ first top-flight centurion.
Elmohamady reached the milestone when he took part in Hull’s 3-1 defeat by Manchester City on 8 April. He was unfortunate to score an own goal in that game, gifting City a 31st-minute opener.
“To play 100 PL games for Hull has been a privilege,” the 29-year-old said on Twitter.
“To be the first to play 100 for this club is an honour. Thank you to everyone.”
