Ahly forward Mohamed Nagy 'Gedo' returned to training on Wednesday for the first time in nine months after recovering from a knee injury.

The Egypt ace – who turned 30 last October – was sidelined with a longstanding injury, having undergone knee surgery in May.

Gedo was supposed to get back in action after only six months but had to go through a longer rehabilitation program in Germany, with pain in his knee lasting longer than expected.

The return of Gedo comes ahead of the league resumption next month and amid the absence of Ahly striker Amr Gamal, who's still nursing a major knee injury.

The Egyptian cabinet have agreed Wednesday with the Egyptian FA on resuming football competitions, which were suspended in the wake of the Cairo Air Defense Stadium disaster that saw 20 Zamalek fans killed ahead of a league match.

The Egyptian Premier League as well as the rest of football competitions have been frozen since 8 February, when 20 Zamalek supporters were killed after police forces used teargas to disperse a crowd of fans attempting to enter the Air Defence Stadium ahead of a league match with ENPPI.
