Soliman may undergo knee surgery: Ahlys doctor

Ahlys star playmaker Walid Soliman may need to undergo knee surgery after he suffered a cartilage injury, according to club doctor Khaled Mahmoud.

"Scans on Sunday revealed that Walid is suffering from an interior knee ligament injury and also a minor cartilage injury," Ahlys doctor Khaled Mahmoud was quoted as saying by the clubs official website.
 
Soliman, 34, left the pitch late in Fridays 1-1 Champions League away draw against Algerian side JS Saoura in the second round of the prestigious African tournaments group stage.
 
"We are yet to determine how long the player would remain on the sidelines pending a final decision on whether he needs cartilage surgery," the doctor added.
 
Solimans injury creates more woe for the Reds, who are already missing key players like Marwan Mohsen, Walid Azaro and Ahmed Fathi due to injury.
 
After the draw, Ahly, who reached the Champions League final in the past two years but lost on both occasions, remained on top of Group D with four points. JS Saoura are third with just one point.
