Garrido announces

Al Ahly manager Juan Carlos Garrido has decided on a list of 20 players to travel to Alexandria for the upcoming match against Al-Ragaa, the Red Devils’ league opener this season.

Youngsters Ramadan Sobhy and Karim ‘Bambo’, who have both been called up for the Egyptian Olympic team’s friendly against Ghana, were dropped from Garrido’s squad.

Defender Sherif Abdel-Fadil is also not included in the squad, as the 31-year-old will miss out due to a calf injury.

The Reds have yet to participate in the first 3 rounds of the as they were to face Cameroonian side Coton Sport in the CAF Confederation Cup semi-final, were Al Ahly were successful in booking a place in the final.

Al Ahly squad:

Goalkeepers: Sherif Ekramy – Ahmed Adel Abdel-Moneim – Mossad Awad

Defenders: Sabry Rahil – Hussein El-Sayed – Saad Samir – Mohamed Naguib – Sherif Hazem – Bassem Ali

Midfielders: Islam Roshdy – Mohamed Farouk – Mohamed Rizk – Hossam Ghaly – Hossam Ashour – Mahmoud ‘Trezeguet’ – Walid Soliman – Moussa Yedan

Forwards: Emad Meteb – Amr Gamal – Ahmed Abdel-Zaher

Bassem Ali should be dropped from the squad due to EFA suspending him from playing activities for a month, as well as fining him 77,000 EGP for his actions with Zamalek club.

The player was said to be legally half-way through negotiations and signing for the Whites, only to pull the plug on the deal and sign for Al Ahly instead, much to the upset of Zamalek’s board and especially Mortada Mansour, who reported the player.

A medical student who loves football. Any free time I have is usually dedicated to football. I support Al Ahly and Real Madrid (Al Ahly comes first of course). Contrary to popular belief, I believe that females enjoy football as much as males do; I am a living proof :D Proud that I am writing for King Fut.
