Ahmed Abu Abla, head of the medical staff of the first team in Al-Ahly, confirmed that the player Mahmoud Metwally will return to participate in the team’s collective training after the match between the National Guard, the Niger champion, scheduled for October 16, in the first leg of the 32nd round of the African Champions League.
Abu Abla said that Metwally complained of hamstring pain, and his condition is constantly improving, and he is expected to return to participate in Al-Ahly’s training after the first National Guard match in Niger.
Al-Ahly resumed its training yesterday after the end of the three-day rest period, and the training witnessed the participation of South African Percy Tau in part of the group training for the first time, after recovering from the injury he suffered during his participation with the South African team early last month.
Al-Ahly’s medical staff indicated that Percy Tao will participate in the training in a gradual manner, after he recovered from a rupture of the connective muscle, which he suffered and kept him out of the team for the last period.
In a related context, Hussein Al-Shahat participated in group exercises after recovering from a strain in the connective muscle.
Al-Ahly’s medical staff was keen to give the player enough time to recover from the injury, and Mohamed Magdy Afsha also participated in the training based on his desire.
The technical staff, led by Pitso Mosimane, decided to give Mohamed Sharif, the team’s striker, a break from training for 3 days.
