Smouha’s Ayman Ashraf tears cruciate ligament
Ayman Ashraf was diagnosed with a torn Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) after undergoing medical tests on Thursday, keeping him off the pitch for the next six months.
The 23-year-old left back – joined from Al Ahly over the summer, has been dealt a harsh blow during Smouha’s third match in the league against Al-Nasr on Thursday.
Ashraf was carried out of the field to get the medical help needed, only to be subbed off for Hisham Fathallah in the 51st minute of the game after primary tests showed he can’t continue on the pitch.
This injury is a major blow to Hamada Sedky’s side, who will be looking to prepare one of his two players: Hisham Shehatah or Ibrahim Hassan to fill in for the injured left-back.
Smouha currently lie in second place in the league with 7 points and are set to travel on September 30th to face Tala’a El-Gaish.
