CAIRO: Zamalek full back Ahmed Ghanem will be sidelines for at least ten days with a knee injury, the Cairo club said on Sunday.
The Whites official site said that Ghanem sustained a knee ligament injury in the weekend s draw with Ahly.
The 24-year-old will undergo scans on his injured knee later on Sunday, but Zamalek chief medic Mostafa Al-Monayeri said he won t return before 10 days.
Ghanem s injury leaves manager Hossam Hassan with limited options on the right flank, given the eight-match suspension of Hazem Emam.
Youngster Omar Gaber, who impressed against Ahly on Friday, is likely to be given the nod in Zamalek s remaining games in the league.
