Zamalek Syrian defender Ajan (Al-Ahram)
Zamalek's Syrian defender Moayad Ajan faces a long spell on the sidelines after suffering a serious knee injury, the club announced on Monday
Scans revealed that Ajan had ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament and needs to undergo surgery in the coming days.
The 25-year-old who joined Zamalek from Iraqi side Naft-Alwasat last summer made 16 appearances, scoring twice in all competitions this season.
He was a regular starter with former coach Nebojsa Jovovic before falling out of favour with his successor Ihab Galal, who opted for Nigerian midfielder Maarouf Yusuf on the left flank.
