Mahmoud Metwally, the Al-Ahly player, will be subjected to x-rays in the coming hours in order to ascertain the extent of the injury he sustained during the team’s friendly against Egypt Insurance yesterday, Thursday.
Although Al-Ahly’s technical and medical staff confirmed that Mahmoud Metwally’s condition is reassuring, and that his injury to a slight strain in Egypt’s insurance friendly is almost normal after the player returned to participate after a long period of absence, but the medical staff asked the player to take x-rays to be sure.
Mahmoud Metwally participated in the Al-Ahly and Misr Insurance friendly yesterday at the Touch Stadium for the first time in a long time in matches after his absence for nearly ten months due to a cruciate ligament injury.
Metwally left the match in the first half after feeling slight pain in the knee. The medical staff asked him for a scan today in order to examine and know the extent of the injury in order to develop a rehabilitation program for it during the rest period that the team obtained after the insurance friendly yesterday, which ended in a draw with two goals for the same.
Metwally returned to participate in the friendly match against Egypt Insurance, after he was absent since last August, when he was injured in the cruciate ligament during the Al-Ahly and Aswan match in the league.
Next Thursday, Al-Ahly will start preparing again for the Esperance match on June 19, in the first leg of the African Champions League semi-final in Tunisia.
