El-Shahat named in UAE League Team of the Season
Following his incredible individual season for Al Ain, Hussein El-Shahat has been named in the UAE League Team of the Season for 2017-18.
Having scored seven and assisted 11 in just 11 appearances for the Emirati side, El-Shahat has been making waves in the Gulf since joining earlier in the season from Misr El-Makkasa.
El-Shahat made his name for Misr El-Makkasa last season when they surprised everyone by challenging Al Ahly for the title for large portions of the season before eventually finishing in second place.
This season, while several Egyptians made the move to Saudi Arabia, El-Shahat opted for a move to another Gulf country in UAE and the decision has paid off with the attacking midfielder earning a call up to the Egypt national team during his time at the club.
El Shahat is named alongside Khalid Eissa, Ahmed Ibrahim, Ismail Ahmed, Mohamed Marzooq, Mahmoud Khamis, Omar Abdulrahman, Rayan Yaslam, Ali Mabkhout, Marcus Berg and Sebastian Tagliabue.
Al Ain and El Shahat, who won the domestic double, will now turn to attempting to overturn a 4-2 deficit in the second leg of the AFC Champions League round of 16 against Al Duhail on Tuesday 15th May at 5:30PM Egyptian time.
