“I hope that Meteb accepts joining us. He is the historic goal scorer for Egypt and Al Ahly, Hassan Shehata told me that he would shine here in case he gives his consent,” El-Nemr told Al Ahly TV.

“We don’t compete in a strong league in Europe and Meteb would be a great reinforcement in our pursuit for second division promotion then Premier League one in order to book a place in Europa League or Champions League spots.”

“The league rules cites that only three non-European players can participate in matches but we are allowed to register up to 10 foreigners, so that won’t be a hurdle in our aims to sign Meteb.”
