Zamalek resumed its training at the residence hotel in Kenya in preparation for facing Tusker in the opening of the team’s campaign in the 2021/2022 African Champions League.
Zamalek is preparing to play the Kenyan Tusker match scheduled for next Saturday at noon in Kenya, in the first leg of the 32nd round of the African Champions League.
The Zamalek players performed physical exercises and stretches at the residence hotel in Kenya after having lunch, then the players moved to the stadium where the team was training.
For his part, the team’s midfielder, Tariq Hamed, was keen to be present in Maran, who were excluded from the Kenya trip.
Hamed performed rehabilitation exercises on the sidelines of the training by running around the stadium, under the supervision of Amr El Matrawy, a rehabilitation specialist, and Mohamed El-Sayed, a physiotherapist.
Hamed refused to take a break after his participation with the Egyptian national team in the World Cup qualifiers, and preferred to participate in the training today, Wednesday.
Tariq Hamed, accompanied by the rest of the international players, is preparing to travel at ten in the evening to Kenya to attend the team’s camp.
Ivorian Razak Cissé, player of Zamalek, continued the rehabilitation program set for him by the medical staff to prepare him to participate in training during the coming period in light of the injury he suffers from.
Cissé, who returned to Zamalek after being loaned, performed qualifying exercises at Abdel Latif Abu Regeila Stadium under the leadership of Amr El Matarawy by running along the pitch.
The player also performed some therapeutic exercises in the gymnasium at the club’s headquarters.
The first leg match between Zamalek and Kenya’s Tusker will be managed by an Ethiopian referee team consisting of: Bamelak Tesema as a referee for the arena, and Samuel Temisingo Atango as first assistant, Fasika Biro Fasika as second assistant and Lima Nguise as fourth referee.
