Al Ahly defender Rami Rabia rejects retirement talk

Rami Rabia speaks after al ahly beat Esperance

defender has rejected suggestions he could be forced into a premature retirement due to his ongoing injury problems.

Rabia has been out of action since January after he picked up an adductor muscle injury during Al Ahly’s 3-0 win over Zamalek in the league. The 25-year-old has denied reports his football career could be over, saying that his injury normally requires a year to fully recover.

In a phone interview with Al Ahly TV satellite channel, Rabia gave an update about his current condition, assuring the fans that he will be back to the squad as soon as he can.

“Thank God I am fully aware of my condition now and I am standing on solid ground, I will start training very soon, of course I’ll be having different kinds of training sessions but I believe things will get better very soon,” the Egypt international defender said.

“The media are writing stories trying to force me to retire saying I am getting new injuries, while my injury normally takes a whole year to fully recover.”

Rabia, however, still isn’t sure about his return date. “It differs from one person to another, so I can’t say when I will return, it takes time and I won’t put extra pressure on myself and I am thankful for the coaching staff who told me to take all the time I need.”

The former Sporting Lisbon defender praised the Red Devils’ new coach Patrice Carteron, who got his Al Ahly reign off to a winning start with a 3-0 victory over Botswana’s Township Rollers in the CAF Champions League group stage.

“Carteron had a great start beating Township Rollers, I hope he continues with positive results through the rest of the season,” he added.
