Fathi Mabrouk: Hendrik Helmke is ready to replace Ashour

Hendrik Helmke

Al Ahly coach believes that Brazilian-German midfielder is now ready for his official debut.

The 27-year-old player joined Al Ahly in January, however, he has yet to make an official appearance with the Reds as he was being treated for a knee injury which he picked up while playing for his former team, Iranian outfits Esteghlal FC.

Fathi Mabrouk, who has recently been re-appointed as manager by Al Ahly’s board, has expressed his admiration of Helmke’s physical and tactical traits; adding that he will be one of the midfield pillars in the upcoming period.

Al Ahly’s next league match against Tala’a El-Gaish may witness Helmke’s official debut as Hossam Ashour has been suspended for receiving a third yellow card in their latest match against Al-Nasr.

“We have many players who can replace Hossam Ashour in the midfield like Mohamed Rizk and Hendrik Helmke,” said Mabrouk.

“Helmke has completely recovered from his injury and is match fit. He may have a chance to participate in Al Ahly’s next game,” he concluded.

Moreover, Helmke denied what came in the latest reports which claimed that he refuses to play and that he wont be able to play again due to his injury.

The midfielder posted a picture of himself wearing Al Ahly’s jersey on Instagram, telling all those who have spread the rumours to ‘get their facts straight’.

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.
