CAIRO: Ahli playmaker Mohamed Abou-Treika will miss his side s clash against Tunisian side Etoile Sahel in the African Super Cup on Sunday after failing to recover from injury in time.
Abou-Treika needs a two-week treatment at least in order to shrug off the groin injury he sustained in the Egyptian League game against Asyut Petroleum last month, team doctor Ehab Ali told FilGoal.com.
The Egyptian and African Champions will be looking to win the Super Cup for the third time in history when they face Etoile Sahel in Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa on Sunday.
Midfielder Hossam Ashour took part in Ahli s training on Wednesday and is expected to feature in the match after recovering from injury.
In more positive news for Ahli boss Manuel Jose, star midfielder Mohamed Barakat will start training from the beginning of March after a lengthy spell on the sidelines through knee injury he picked up back in October.
