Vitória Setúbal sign Libya duo Shibli, Al Masri from Ahli Tripoli
The Libyan duo rose to prominence with the Mediterranean Knights in 2014, during the country’s first continental title win – the African Championship of Nations (CHAN).
A very hardworking and physical defensive midfielder in the purest Libyan tradition of tireless midfielders, Mohamed Shibli, 25, marshalled Libya’s midfield during the tournament.
On his side, Hamdou Al Masri, 21, is a speedy full-back who can also play as a winger or midfielder, and has no fear to bomb forward and provide crosses to his teammates.
The duo have signed two-year deals with Vitória from Libyan side Al Ahli Tropli, whom they won the league with during the 2013/14 season.
