Basel manager Urs Fischer has confirmed the return of Omar Gaber back to Basel’s training ground last Thursday which marked February 9, 2017.

The Swiss manager had his doubts on whether Omar was fully fit to be back in competition for his place in the team after returning to Basel with a silver medal with the Egyptian national team in the AFCON.

“Omar Gaber came back yesterday. He will need more time to be ready to play,” Fischer said.

The former Zamalek captain will need to show his quality and determination in order to earn a place in Fischer’s Starting XI at the right-back position as he faces competition from Michael Lang, who has started 16 league games this season and was able to find the back of the net on four occasions and assisted three times.

Omar Gaber has made 11 appearances across all competitions this season for the Swiss Champions, assisting once against Grasshopper Club Zürich in the Swiss league.
