Galatasaray coach Fatih Terim heaped praise on winter-signing Mostafa Mohamed, adding that he hopes the Egyptian international continues his impressive start with the team. 

The 23-year-old made headlines in Turkey after scoring his fourth straight goal since joining the club. 

He netted the winner in Galatasaray's 2-1 victory over Kasimpasa in the Turkish league on Sunday.

"Mohamed is playing extremely well. It's very important for forwards to take control of the ball and push us forward, and he does this job very well," Terim told the post-match news conference.

"It is important that he scores goals, even from the spot. He is an important and talented player who I hope will get even better.

"It makes us all happy that our young players score goals and are successful," he added.

Mohamed joined Galatasaray from Cairo giants Zamalek on a year-and-a-half loan contract last month, with the Turkish club paying $2 million for his services with an option to make the deal permanent at the end of the year.

Galatasaray are on top of the Turkish league table with 51 points, on level with archrivals Fenerbahce after 24 matches.
