Chants from Liverpool fans of the “Egyptian King” Mohamed Salah, the reds winger, have generated widespread reactions, following a match between Liverpool and Porto in the last 16 round of the Champions League last week. Some English fans chanted that they will convert to Islam if Mo Salah continues to shine and scores more goals, and have no objections to going to a mosque. Liverpool fans gathered in Porto sung after the match: “If he’s good enough for you, he’s good enough for me.. If he scores another few then I’ll be Muslim too.. He’s sitting in a mosque, that’s where I want to be.” The majority of Liverpool fans supported the chant on the official pages of the English club on social networking sites, and expressed their happiness with the Egyptian star. In his first season, Salah has scored 30 goals, only one goal behind the Uruguayan Luis Suarez, who scored 31 goals in the season 2013-2014. Salah is competing this season with Harry Kane, striker of Tottenham Hotspur, as the top goal scorer in the English league, which is an achievement not reached by an Arab or Egyptian player before. Salah was crowned the best left-footer in Premier League history earlier this month after scoring against Southhampton. This means Salah needs one more goal to break Robbie Fowler’s record of 19 left-foot goals, a record set in 1994/1995, according to the official Premier League website. Salah has had an amazing past year, from single handedly carrying the national Egyptian team to the World Cup to winning BBC’s Best African Footballer of the Year along with several other awards.

Cairo's ailing giants Zamalek suffered their sixth defeat of the season after a 1-0 loss to Masry in the Egyptian Premier League in Alexandria on Wednesday, losing ground in the race to book a spot in one of the two main African competitions. Playmaker Islam Eissa headed home the winner just past the hour mark as Masry, whose coach Hossam Hassan was absent due to a touchline ban imposed on him for making an obscene arm gesture in a previous match, avenged their 2-1 defeat by Zamalek in the reverse fixture in September. Zamalek slumped to their second defeat in four matches under new coach Ehab Galal. They have won only once since the 50-year-old took over earlier this month. The White Knights are fifth in the table with 32 points, five behind third-placed Masry who occupy an African Confederation Cup spot. Ismaily have 42 points in second place, which earns an African Champions League qualification. Zamalek played with an unfamiliar three-man backline, with full-backs Ahmed Aboul-Fotouh and Youssef Ibrahim given attacking roles down the flank. But Zamalek were sluggish upfront, failing to slice open Masry's defence in a first-half with few goal-scoring opportunities. Masry had the first chance after 13 minutes when Eissa raced clear but a one-handed save from keeper Ahmed El-Shennawi denied him. He tried to fire home on the rebound his effort went across the six-yard box. Zamalek's only opportunity came two minutes before the break when Aboul-Fotouh skipped past his challenger after a pull-back from Ghanaian striker Nana Poku, who made his debut following his January arrival, but his attempted cross was palmed away by the keeper. The only highlight of a dour second half was in the 61st minute when the diminutive Eissa outjumped his marker to head home an inviting cross from the right, handing Masry a valuable win. More»

Egypt's ailing giants Zamalek appointed Enppi's Ehab Galal as their new coach, the Cairo club announced on Saturday. Galal ended his Enppi contract after paying a buy-out clause, Zamalek said in a statement on their official website. Its amount was not disclosed.  "Galal penned a one-and-a-half year contract with the club," Zamalek added. The 50-year-old succeeds Montenegrin coach Jovovic, who was sacked after some poor results dented Zamalek's hopes of competing for the Egyptian Premier League title. Galal will be tasked with turning around the fortunes of Zamalek after they lost four and drew as many games in their first 16 league matches of the season, slipping to fourth in the table, nine points behind leaders Ismaily.  He rose to fame as a manager after an extraordinary campaign with Maqassa last season, helping them finish runners-up to league champions Ahly to earn a historic African Champions League spot. However, he resigned in the summer after falling out with Maqassa's chairman over the club's policy in the transfer market.  Galal took over at Enppi in October and made an instant impact, steering the club to six wins, four draws and only one loss in 11 matches, which came against title holders Ahly. His first match in charge of Zamalek will be a mouth-watering Cairo derby against Ahly on Monday.  "I will be fully responsible for the Ahly match," Galal told Zamalek's official website. "I am confident of the players' ability to produce top-level football and win over the fans." More»

Ahly, whose match squad included players from other Egyptian and Arab Gulf clubs, threw away a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to Spanish La Liga side Atletico Madrid in a friendly played under the slogan "Peace Against Terrorism" in Alexandria on Saturday. "This big sports event is arranged to stress the role of sporting institutions in supporting the country while it faces various challenges," read a statement on Ahly's official website ahead of the game. The Cairo giants took the lead through their forward Moamen Zakarya six minutes before the break and winger Ahmed El-Sheikh made it 2-0 in the 52nd minute.
