“I spoke to Ramadan after facing Sun Downs, and we agreed to participate in him on Tuesday,” Abdul Hafeez said on Radio On Sport.
“I told him that if he felt a little bit of pain he should not participate, we are heading towards an important stage and we need to be ready,” he added.
Al-Ahly qualified for the CAF Champions League semi-finals at the expense of the South African Sun Downs, adding its historical record of participating in this round with 16 entries. His rival will be Moroccan Wydad, with the go-to confrontation taking place in Casablanca in early May, and a week later in Egypt.
Abdel Hafeez also spoke about the position of some of the injuries that struck the team during the return match against Sun Downs, where he said: “Geraldo suffers from a slight sprain in the ankle, while Mahmoud Metwally suffers from a strain in the connective muscle and Ali Maaloul suffers from a strain in the front muscle, but it is minor injuries “.
Abdel-Hafeez went on to talk about Mahmoud Abdel-Moneim “electrifying” the team’s wing, stressing that his exclusion from my confrontation with Sun Downs was “a technical decision by Rennie Fyler, the team’s coach.”
He added, “There is no internal suspension in Al-Ahly. We have a list that has been applied and we are awaiting the outcome of the grievance against the sanctions.”
The Disciplinary Committee suspended electrification to the end of the season after the clashes that took place between Al-Ahly and Zamalek at the end of the local super match, which Al-Abyad was crowned with a penalty shootout.
