CAIRO – 5 December 2017: Mahmoud Abdel Razek, known as Shikabala, will return to the starting squad list of his current Saudi Arabian team Al-Raed FC in a game scheduled for Tuesday at 6:40 pm against Al-Hilal FC, which ranks third in the Saudi Professional League.
This game was postponed from the sixth week of the league.
Super Kora echoed Saudi press reports that revealed that the head coach of Al-Raed, Ciprian Panait, has decided to put Shikabala in the starting eleven for such an important match against a strong competitor. The former Zamalek star Shikabala missed the last game of the league against Al-Feiha FC that ended by a 2-0 victory for Al-Raed FC; Ciprian excluded Shikabala after a dispute that rose during a training session, where a violent interception was carried out by Shikabala against one of his teammates.
Al-Raed FC is now in the last place of the standing table of the Saudi Professional League with nine points.
