Ahmed Abu Abla, the head of the medical staff of the first football team at Al-Ahly Club, said that Mohammad El-Shennavi had a torn hamstring muscle.
Abu Abla said that al-Shennavi needed a treatment period of 4 to 5 weeks.
El-Shennavi was injured during Egypt’s match against Libya in the fourth round of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Al-Shennavi is undergoing a treatment and rehabilitation program in the coming period to prepare for his return to participate in official training and matches.
