Former Al Ahly and Konyaspor striker Ahmed Farag Belal was sentenced to ten years in prison by an Egyptian court on Thursday.

The 34-year-old is accused of forging official documents submitted by an import/export company headed by Belal.

Five further witness accounts backed Moussa’s claims, while has been released on bail for the time being.

Belal scored 59 goals in 127 appearances for the Red Devils during his two stints there, and netted six goals in 30 Süper Lig matches for Konyaspor between 2005 and 2007. His goals-to-games ratio with the Egyptian national team is impressive, with 20 goals in 26 caps for the Pharaohs.
