Egypt and Bani Yas striker Mohamed Zidan missed out on the 2-0 victory over Ittihad Kalba in the United Arab Emirates League because of a knee injury.

"Zidan asked to be sidelined from the Ittihad Kalba game after feeling problems in his knee," Bani Yas coach Jozef Chovanec said after the game.

"We hope the player will be fit soon," he added.

"Medical scans will show how serious the injury he suffers from is," the tactician concluded.

The 30-year-old attacker, who was initially hit with a hamstring injury early this season, made some impressive performances after recovering, including scoring two goals. He was injured again during the 3-1 defeat against Al-Wasl in the UAE domestic league in December.

Zidan joined the Emirati outfit in summer after spending 12 years in Europe playing for Borussia Dortmund and Mainz in Bundesliga.
