Ahly's new signing Moussa Yedan is sad over team star Mohamed Abou-Treika recent decision to quit football.
"I am very happy to join the greatest club in Africa. I know that we will face a severe competition in the coming period but I am ready for that challenge and I will do my best to prove my worth," Burkina Faso's frontman Yedan told Ahly's official website after arriving in Cairo on Tuesday.
"I know some of Ahly stars such as Wael Gomaa, Sherif Ekramy, Ahmed Fathy, and Mohamed Mohamed Abou-Treika who has a great value in Africa. I am very sad to miss him after his recent retirement," he added.
Earlier on November, the Cairo giants signed a four and a half season deal with former Cameroon's Coton Sport striker Yedan.
The 24-year-old, who will replace Mauritanian Dominique Da Silva, joined the Egyptian team after his eye-catching performance with Coton Sport.
Yedan is supposed to join the Red Devils training sessions for the first time on Wednesday.
After its recent failure at the Club World Cup in Morocco, Ahly is currently preparing for the Egyptian league new season that will kick off Tuesday. They will take on El-Entag El-Harby at the tournament's opener on Thursday.
