Sobhi was not involved as Al Ahly completed their Egyptian league campaign with a 0-0 draw against city rivals Zamalek with Jol confirming that he was “not 100 per cent fit”.

But, after Stoke improved their bid for the teenage winger to £5.5million, former Tottenham and Ajax manager Jol wished Sobhi all the best ahead of his move to Europe.

“I was very happy that Ramadan [Sobhi] was with us today, but he couldn’t start,” the Ahly manager told ONtv.

“If he goes, he did it in a good way, and that’s better than doing it in a bad way,” the Dutch manager added.

Jol then confirmed the club are preparing to bid farewell to the player in the post-match press conference ahead of his proposed move to the Britannia Stadium.

“I am very proud of Ramadan Sobhi, he insisted on playing today,” said Jol, before adding: “We’re preparing a farewell party for him soon.

“Ramadan didn’t start the game due to his injury, as the player was not 100 per cent fit to play against Zamalek.”
