Al Ahly coach Hossam El-Badry has revealed that the Cairo club blocked Ahmed Hamdy’s loan move to Portuguese side Sporting Braga, KingFut reports.
Last week the Red Devils and coach El-Badry confirmed that the young midfielder had been given the green light to head to Portugal on loan.
It was hoped that the experience Hamdy would gain in Europe would help him rejuvenate his career with the Egyptian giants.
However, while speaking to Nagham FM, El-Badry revealed that that he had spoken to Hamdy after Al Ahly’s friendly on Sunday and learned that the club’s board had declined Braga’s offer of a free loan deal for Hamdy.
A move to Braga would have seen Hamdy reunite with coach Jose Peseiro, the man who promoted the player to Ahly’s first team ranks at the beginning of last season.
