Al Ahly register Amr Gamal, Rami Rabia in domestic squad

Al Ahly register Amr Gamal, Rami Rabia in domestic squad
Al Ahly have decided to register and in their squad for the domestic competitions, the club have confirmed on Wednesday.

The duo will replace Sabry Rahil and Salif Coulibaly after they departed the club in the January transfer window to join Ittihad of Alexandria and Iraqi side Al Shorta respectively.

Amr Gamal has not featured for Al Ahly since August 2017, when he managed to score and assist two late goals against Al Masry in the 2017 Egypt Cup final, guiding the Red Devils to the title.

Since then he has had two loan spells with South African side Bidvest Wits and Finnish giants HJK Helsinki, winning the Telkom Knockout Cup with the first and the league title with the latter.

The 27-year-old returned to Al Ahly last summer, but wasn’t registered in the squad, and was limited to play in the friendlies only.

However, after the injuries that hit the club’s forwards Marwan Mohsen, Salah Mohsen, and Walid Azaro, the club have decided to add him to the list.

Meanwhile, Rami Rabia has also managed to return back to the squad after recovering from a long-term injury, which saw him sidelined since January 2018.

The 25-year-old’s last game for Al Ahly came during their 3-0 victory over arch-rivals Zamalek, the game where he picked up a severe groin injury.

He has been declared fit to play and will join Yasser Ibrahim, Saad Samir, Ahmed Alaa, Ayman Ashraf, and Mohamed Naguib as the club’s centre-backs.

Rabia is a product of Al Ahly’s youth sector, and has made over 125 appearances for the club, winning five league titles, two CAF Champions Leagues, and one Egypt Cup.

He has also had a stint at Portuguese side Sporting CP, featuring just three times for them during the 2014/2015 season, before returning back to Al Ahly.
