Ahly coach Rene Weiler has announced that the team's playmaker Saleh Gomaa will not have a place in the current squad, hoping the latter will have regular play with another team.
Last week, Gomaa announced that he was suffering under Ahly's new coach Weiler, who always omits the playmaker from the team's squad despite his performance during trainings.
"Each player has two sides, technical and mental. While Saleh Gomaa has the technical part, he lacks the mental one, which is related to concentration, as he was repeatedly fined by the team's management," Weiler told a press conference after the 2-0 win over Arab contractors on Sunday.
"Saleh Gomaa won't have a role with us. I wish him good luck with another team," the Ahly coach said.
Ahly fined the 26-year-old attacking midfielder repeatedly this season due to his absence from the team's trainings. Moreover, he did not make any appearance with team during the ongoing season.
Since his arrival to Ahly in the 2015 season from Egyptian Premier league side Enppi, Gomaa made 69 appearances with the Reds, scoring 12 goals and making 13 assists.
Ahly are in the driver’s seat of the Egyptian Premier league, with a full mark of 36 points after playing 12 games so far this season.
