Egypt and Al-Nasr midfielder Hosni Abd-Rabou will rejoin the Saudi team's training session Tuesday after recovering from a muscle injury.

According to Saudi newspaper Alriyadh on Tuesday, the 28-year-old midfielder arrived in Saudi Arabia after finalising his rehab programme in Cairo and will be available for the trainings with his teammates.

Also on Tuesday, the Saudi outfit will hold a press conference to present new coach Daniel Carreno from Uruguay who succeeds Colombian Francisco Maturana after the 3 -1 defeat against rival Al-Hilal in the domestic league.

Abd-Rabou was injured in the 2-1 victory over Al-Tawon on the 4th matchday of the Saudi League last month, where he scored his team's opener.

The Pharaohs' midfielder joined Al-Nasr from Egyptian Premier League side Ismaily on a season-long loan during the summer transfer window.

Last season Abd-Rabou played in the Saudi Professionals League for Ittihad Jeddah, also on loan, scoring four goals in 12 appearances. The Saudi champions, however, failed to secure a permanent contract with Abd-Rabou.
