Egyptian Zamalek club president adviser Mortada Mansour said Al-Ahly club president Mahmoud Al-Khatib was “playing with fire” in response to the Red Castle administration’s decision to end the league with juniors.
“Al-Khatib is playing with fire,” Mansour said in a statement to TV channel Zamalek, adding that the country “cannot tolerate” public games.
And he continued: “It is unwise to make a statement every day. You are pushing all people away, Captain Khatib. The game is a little easier, not because I want it cancelled, so we’ll go out of town.”
He said: “Al-Khatib is the reason for what is happening to the Al-Ahli team when he refused to cancel the league during the coronavirus pandemic and insisted on ending it.”
Al Ahly’s board of directors at a meeting held on Thursday decided to dissolve the judging committee and not participate in competitions organized by the Egyptian Football Association, the Egyptian Cup and the Egyptian Super until the requirements of the Al Ahly club are met. . .
He also decided to complete the general league matches with juniors and players returning from injuries.
