Mozambican midfielder Luis Miquissone is a major doubt for Al Ahly’s CAF Champions League semifinal second leg game against ES Setif in Algeria on Saturday.
The Egyptian team has confirmed that the former Simba winger picked a leg injury while training at Mustapha Tchaker Stadium in Algeria on Thursday.
“Miquissone wasn’t able to continue the team’s training and was accompanied by Ahmed Abu Abla, the team’s doctor, to one of the hospitals that is near the stadium to undergo several medical tests,” Al Ahly website reports.
The holders are confident of booking a final berth after winning the first leg match 4-0 in Cairo last weekend.
Meanwhile, Al Ahly have received some boost as another midfielder Amr El Soulia has started light training.
The club says he performed several recovery exercises at the stadium on the sidelines of the team’s training session on Thursday.
El Soulia is currently performing a recovery program to recover from his hamstring muscle injury.
Al Ahly are chasing a third consecutive Champions League title under South African mentor Pitso Mosimane.
