Zamalek Keeper Mohamed Awad tested positive to COVID-19

Zamalek’s goalkeeper Mohamed Awaad on Friday has announced that he tested positive for coronavirus.

On his official Twitter page, Awad said that the PCR tests, which he underwent, have proved that he diagnosed with respiratory disease, but he did not give any further information about that.

On July 2019, Zamalek completed Awaad’s transfer from Ismaily in a deal worth up to EGP 35 million, in addition to a swap deal, which included the signing of Ahmed Madbouli, Mahmoud Abdel-Aty Donga to Ismaily.

The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) has recently said that the coronavirus cases detected among league clubs have increased to 11, with the likes of Enppi, Ittihad of Alexandria and Gouna confirming infections among their players and technical staff members.

The clubs did not identify those who contracted the virus as per guidelines introduced by the EFA.

Zamalek said on Wednesday they would withdraw from the league over coronavirus concerns, becoming the only club to make such a threat even though there are other sides who oppose the competition’s resumption.

Defending champions Ahly are the overwhelming favourites to win a fifth straight title as they top the table with 49 points after 17 games, 16 ahead of the nearest challengers Arab Contractors, who have played one game more than the Red Devils.

Zamalek are fourth in the table with 31 points, having played a game less than Ahly and two less than Arab Contractors.
