On the Wings of Fear: Al Ahly Players Face All Problems in Congo

Injury problems and tension cause anxiety before the Mazembe match and lead to a collective complaint


Despite their preparations for the semi-final stage of the African Champions League, the players in the ranks of Al Ahly club are facing physical and psychological challenges before facing the Congolese team Mazembe on the famous tartan pitch. Among the players who expressed their dissatisfaction, Akram Tawfik stands out, who has undergone two previous surgical tribulations for the cruciate ligament, which makes him feel anxious about his participation in this crucial match.

As if these problems were not enough, Ahmed Nabil “Koka” complained of knee pain, while Percy Tau expressed his dissatisfaction due to the recurring pain in the ankle, which puts the team in a critical situation before the important meeting.

Since this concern affects the performance of the players, the team’s coach, Marcel Keeler, decided to take an exceptional step, where he decided to travel the entire team to participate in the match, in order to provide psychological and moral support to the players and motivate them to achieve the desired result. To ensure the availability of possible options, Keeler also decided to keep all injured players in Cairo, showing his care for their well-being and health.

Unlike previous times, the number of players who will travel to Congo to participate in the match increased to 24 players, reflecting the technical staff’s keenness to provide all precautions and possible options to achieve victory.

With these developments, the Al Ahly club mission left for Congo early on Wednesday, where it seeks to prepare well and fully focus before facing Mazembe in the first leg match next Saturday, which is considered a golden opportunity to advance towards the final of the tournament.
