Abdel-Zaher Loaned To Al Ittihad

Egyptian giants, Al Ahly, have sent their suspended striker,Ahmed Abdel-Zaher, on loan to Libyan side, Al Ittihad.

Abdel-Zaher was expected to leave Al Ahly following the events of the CAF Champions League final when he celebrated his goal against Orlando Pirates with a Rabaa Salute (four fingers - a symbol associated with support for ousted Islamist president, Mohamed Morsi).

The loan includes a swap deal that will see the 28-year-old Zaher move to Ittihad for a reported $200,000 while Libyan club striker, Ahmed Raouf, heads the opposite direction to join the Cairo giants for $150,000.

“I will spend the period of my loan with the Libyan team as the continuation of the Egyptian Premier League is not granted. I will become tactically and physically fit then I will return to Al Ahly.”

“Al Ittihad competes on the Libyan league, something which encouraged me to accept their offer. I will do my best during this time,” he told the kingfut website.

Although Zaher publically apologised for his actions, he was deprived of his Championship bonuses, and was not included in the Club World Cup squad in December, of which Al Ahly lost all their games.
