Ghazl El-Mahalla keeper wears Liverpool shirt against Al Ahly

Ghazl El-Mahalla keeper

keeper El-Mahdi Soliman wore a shirt in their clash with giants Al Ahly on Thursday.

It’s gone slightly unnoticed, but Ghazl El-Mahalla goalkeeper El-Mahdi Soliman wore a Liverpool shirt in a 1-0 loss against Al Ahly in the Egyptian Premier League on Thursday night.

There has been no reasoning given as to how this bizarre situation occurred; however, it is believed that El-Mahalla’s kit man forgot to bring the goalkeeper’s jersey so they were forced to run to a local shop where they picked out the Liverpool kit.

The kit man even went to the extreme length of taping a McDonald’s logo (the sponsor of his side) onto the front of the shirt.

Funnily enough, the last time these two sides met, Ghazl El-Mahalla had to start their goalkeeping coach Nasser Farouk – who even managed to save a penalty – as their two other goalkeepers were injured.
