Ferjani Sassi injury doesn’t look good, says Christian Gross
The Whites have earned a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Hassania Agadir in Suez Stadium on Sunday, which was enough to secure their spot in CAF Confederation Cup semi-finals.
The Swiss manager has revealed his delight with the result and the performance against a tough opponent as the Moroccan side.
“I am delighted with the victory and satisfied with the team’s performance in such a tough game; nevertheless, today’s victory isn’t the end, there are still more rounds and games to come,” Gross said in his post-match press conference.
However, Zamalek have received a huge blow during the game as Tunisian midfielder Ferjani Sassi limped out after 16 minutes only after sustaining an ankle injury.
And Gross has admitted that injury doesn’t look good, adding that he expects a lengthy absence for the Tunisian international.
“We are very upset for Sassi’s injury. At first sight, it doesn’t look good, I expect it will be a strong one. We will wait and see,” Gross said.
Sassi has been Zamalek’s most consistent player this season, scoring seven goals and providing three assists in 20 Egyptian Premier League games.
It is worth mentioning that Zamalek will play against the winner between Etoile du Sahel and Al Hilal in the semi-finals, with the first leg ending 3-1 for the Tunisian club in Sousse.
