Hossam Ghaly, the former Al-Ahly star, believes that the presence of Mahmoud Al-Khatib, president of Al-Ahly club, among the players in the team’s delegation in Qatar, in preparation for participating in the World Cup, will have a good echo on the players.
In televised statements, Ghali gave advice to Al-Ahly players who are currently in Qatar: “Al-Khatib treats the players as a father. He embraces them and hears them while they respect him, and a presence among them makes them feel happy.”
And the former Al-Ahly player added that El-Shenawi and Ali Maaloul have a leading figure on the stadium and their role with the team is very influential.
“There is no difficult need, we can do good results and win big, before we faced teams that have their name, history, marketing value, and the ball did justice to us thanks to the confidence, pride and desire that existed among the players,” El Capitano added.
The former Al-Ahly star added: “I am very convinced of Musimani’s abilities, although he raises controversy about his choices for some players, but it is technical convictions. What is important is that these options achieve the required results, because the fan thinks about a player while the coach thinks about 30 players and seeks to equip them all.”
Al-Ahly club received a letter from FIFA, in which the latter confirmed the reduction of the FIFA Club World Cup qualification reward from $ 2.5 million to $ 1 million due to the circumstances in which the current version of the tournament is being held in Qatar against the backdrop of the Corona pandemic, which caused millions of dollars in financial losses for everyone. In the sports street and outside the sports center.
FIFA had decided that every club participating in the world championship would get two million and 500 thousand dollars before it was reduced to one million dollars, or nearly 16 million Egyptian pounds due to the repercussions of the Corona pandemic, and thus the team participating in the tournament or the one who would get the last place would get one million dollars .
