Egyptian forward Mido has not travelled to Portugal with the rest of the Boro squad for the Algarve Cup tournament owing to a problem regarding his visa.


The striker, who missed a large part of his inaugural season on Teesside through injury, returned to pre-season training in great shape having spent a large part of the summer working with Boro fitness coach Nick Allamby in his home city of Cairo.


Boro play the first of two games in the Algarve Cup tournament this evening (Tuesday, July 22).


A strong Boro side will take on Bank of Scotland Premier League champions Celtic, and although Mido will not be involved he has stressed that the reasons for his unavailability are out of his hands.


The player has released the following statement: “I would like Boro supporters to know why I am not in the team for this evening’s game in Portugal against Celtic.


“There have been ongoing problems regarding my visa which I hope to have sorted shortly. It could be that the Portuguese Embassy require up to a week to amend this situation, thus preventing my ability to travel to Portugal in the very immediate future.”
