Sayed Abdel Hafeez said on the authority of Saleh Jumaa: “He joined the group and committed himself well and in good physical condition, and according to Fyler’s decision, he will be present, whether in the match between Al-Masry or Wadi Degla.”
“Ayman Ashraf suffered a slight bruise in the El Gouna match, and Mohamed Mahmoud will return within two weeks,” he added about the situation of the injured on MBC Egypt.
He also talked about Ahmed Fathi’s position on staying in Al-Ahly. “He did not talk to us about anything. He is strong with the team and participates in all training and matches in a positive way.”
And he continued, “throughout the match, his spirit is present, whether or not to stay is not the position of the technical staff but the management and the player, and there is no final conversation and the position is as it is until now.”
Pyramids had announced that Ahmed Fathy would join the team, starting next season, in a free transfer deal, after the end of his contract with Al-Ahly.
Abdel Hafeez touched on the stadium of the Wydad match in the semi-finals of the African Champions League, saying: “We received an official answer to play the first leg on the 26th and return on October 3rd in Cairo.”
He added, “We started taking steps early, and the match will take place either at Al-Salam Al-Ahly stadium or Burj Al-Arab. We had hoped that it would take place in Cairo Stadium, which is our first choice, and if not, it will be in Al Salam or Burj Al Arab.”
On the position of Moroccan Walid Azzaro: “Azaro will join the team in the middle of September, and Azaro is not entitled to participate in the African Championship as well, despite his presence on the list.”
He concluded about Zamalek’s complaint to Walid Suleiman in FIFA, “To whom will the complaint be submitted? No one will bid on Walid Suleiman and his behavior, and Abdel Shafi visited as a stadium colleague, and that will remain an extended relationship, and we did not and will not apologize.”
