Frustrated Ahli to 'raise morale' in Alexandria
Published in FilGoal on 24 - 09 - 2012

The Ahli management is looking forward to ‘raising the team morale' by holding a one-week training camp in Alexandria ahead of the Champions League encounter with Sunshine Stars.
The decision to camp away from Cairo comes amid continuous tension between the Reds' squad and the ultras fans, who rallied before the club's headquarters in protest over what they perceived as the players' ‘shameful stance' towards the victims of the Port-Said disaster.
“The players are really frustrated for being attacked by their own fans," football director Sayed Abdul-Hafiz told
“We will try to raise their morale and make them forget all what happened to save the team from falling.
“Our goal is to prepare for the semi-final game against Sunshine Stars away from any tension or unrest."
Ahli should play two friendly games against Alexandria-based Olympic and Smouha during the camp as they gear up for the Champions League semi-final clash on 5/6/7 October.
The relationship between the Ultras Ahlawy group and the team's staff and players has been far from intact since this month's Super Cup saga, with the die-hard fans demanding ‘justice' against the culprits of the Port-Said disaster, a calamity that saw some 74 members of the group killed.
Rabiea out
Meanwhile, youngster Rami Rabiea has been ruled out for two weeks and is set to miss Ahli's Sunshine Stars visit to a hamstring complaint.
Rabiea, 19, picked up the injury during the Egypt youth team narrow victory over Angola in the 2013 African Championship qualifiers a day ago.
Striker Emad Meteb and defender Sherif Abdul-Fadil will also miss the Alexandria trip and are rated doubtful for the Sunshine first-leg clash.
In another context, Ahli have accepted an offer to play Saudi side Hilal in the farewell game of Abdullah Al-Sharida on October 13, nearly a week before the second-leg home fixture against Sunshine.
