Cairo Derby: El-Shennawy Out Due To COVID-19

Al Ahly skipper and goalkeeper Mohamed El-Shennawy has been tested positive for COVID-19 just days ahead of the Cairo derby against Zamalek.

The 32-year-old is considered an integral part of Al Ahly’s squad, having kept 13 clean sheets in 20 games across all competitions this season.

He was one of the main reasons behind the Reds’ bronze medal triumph at the Club World Cup, when he saved two penalties against Copa Libertadores champions Palmeiras.

However, Al Ahly will now have to cope without him as the player’s swab test result returned positive, which could see him miss the Cairo derby next week.

Some reports emerged, saying that El-Shennawy’s symptoms are minor and he could recover in time for the game, but until now nothing is confirmed.

If he fails to make the game, Ali Lotfi will replace the El-Shennawy between the sticks, with Mostafa Shobier being named as the substitute goalkeeper.

Several key names will miss the game from Al Ahly’s part, most notably Ali Maaloul, Yasser Ibrahim, Mohamed Hany, Hamdi Fathi, and Junior Ajayi.
