Zamalek request that Olympic team duo Omar Gaber and Ahmed Al-Shennawi return to the club ahead of this month’s Champions League clash with Ahli.
Two weeks before their opener with Brazil, the Egypt Olympic team are preparing for the London Games in Europe, with three players from Ahli and two from Zamalek on board.
While Ahli have been promised to have senior trio Mohamed Abou-Treika, Ahmed Fathi and Emad Meteb back before the July 22 meeting, Zamalek said on their website that they insist on the same for Gaber and Al-Shennawi.
Ahli have also agreed with the Olympic team management to have their three players back for next month’s Champions League game with Berekum Chelsea, in case Egypt got through the group stage in London.
In addition to over-23 trio Abou-Treika, Fathi and Meteb, Ahli duo Saad Samir and Shehab Ahmed are also with the Olympic squad.
