Hossam Hassan criticises EFA after Al Masry beat Al Ahly –

Al Masry manager Hossam Hassan criticised the Egyptian Football Association and explained that he had no special plan for his side’s match against Al Ahly.

Al Masry defeated Al Ahly 3-2 in a postponed match from gameweek 24 of the Egyptian Premier League at Borg El-Arab Stadium, a result that helped the Port Said-based club jump to the third position, one point clear of fourth-placed Wadi Degla.

“My plan doesn’t change and I don’t depend on the opposition’s tactics. I have my tactical plan, I have my goals, and I play against all the teams in the same way,” Hassan said in post-match press conference.

Al Ahly director of football Sayed Abdel-Hafiz revealed that Evouna sustained an ankle ligament injury that will rule the Gabon international for the next three weeks.


Mido: Ramadan Sobhy is the best talent in North Africa –

Former Egypt international and Tottenham Hotspur striker Ahmed Hossam ‘Mido’ praisesRamadan Sobhy ahead of a proposed Stoke City move.

Ramadan Sobhy’s agent confirmed to KingFut the presence of an offer from English Premier league club Stoke City for the 19-year-old Prodigy, with Al Ahly now having the final say on the matter.

With that being said, Mido thinks Ramadan Sobhy can easily slot in at the Potters.

“Ramadan Sobhy is the best talent in North Africa. He can score goals, assist and works hard when he doesn’t have the ball, something which is essential for playing in England,” Mido told KingFut.

“Ramadan can play on the left, cut inside and score. His style is a bit similar to Arnautovic but he can be better than him,” Mido continued.
