Al-Ahly club officials decided the matter regarding the team’s goalkeeper Mohamed El-Shennawi’s participation in the Zamalek match tomorrow, Sunday, in the league, by confirming that the goalkeeper’s swab is positive and that he has not recovered from the Corona virus.
And after it was confirmed that El-Shennawi was absent from the Zamalek match scheduled for 9:30 tomorrow evening, Sunday, in the Egyptian League, Ali Lotfi became the main goalkeeper for the team, and Ali Lotfi has few participations with Al-Ahly over the past period because the technical staff has relied on Mohamed El Shennawy.
Ali Lotfi has participated with Al-Ahly in 14 games since joining Al-Ahmar in January 2018, and came out with a clean sheet in 11 games, and he conceded 8 goals in 3 games.
Al-Ahly suffered two defeats in the presence of Ali Lotfi, the first was against Al-Ittihad of Alexandria in the 2018 season, where Al-Ahmar lost four goals to three for the Red Team, and the second was against Vita Club Vita Club in the African Champions League 2019 season.
Al-Ahly tied with Pyramids in a negative way in the 2020 season, with Ali Lotfi as goalkeeper for Al-Ahly’s goalkeeper.
Despite the big difference between El-Shenawi and Lotfi, the latter is armed with determination and persistence in order to confirm his competence to defend Areen Al-Ahly in the Egyptian summit, especially as he left with a clean sheet in 11 previous matches with the team.
