Al Ahly’s Uruguayan coach Martin Lasarte has announced the Red Devils squad for Friday’s game against Algerian side JS Saoura in Bechar in the second round of the CAF Champions League group stage.
Lasarte has enlisted the help of newly signed players including midfielder Hamdi Fathi, who joined the team from ENPPI on Sunday, defender Yasser Ibrahim, who joined the team from Smouha last week, as well Nigerian forward Junior Ajayi who recently recovered from a five-month-old injury.
