The former Egyptian club president, Zamalek, Mortada Mansour, canceled his visit to the headquarters of the White Club, which was scheduled, today, Thursday.
In a video posted on his Facebook account, Mortada said: “I gave up going to the Zamalek club because I wanted not to cause any inconvenience to the security, as I received many calls indicating that thousands of members wanted to receive me.”
He added, “I told the Minister of Sports, Ashraf Sobhi, that I would not go to the club out of concern for the country.”
He continued: “Egypt has a more important battle, which is the battle of the Renaissance Dam, and I do not want to cause any side problems, and no one dares to prevent me from entering the Zamalek club.”
And the Egyptian Minister of Sports, Ashraf Sobhi, had announced that “Mortada will go to the Zamalek club, but to retrieve some of his belongings from his office, in coordination with Hussein Labib, head of the committee in charge of managing the club, and not to run the club again, as he claimed.”
It is scheduled that the Zamalek club elections will be called at the end of next August, where Mortada Mansour and his board of directors, which was frozen by a decision of the Minister of Youth and Sports due to administrative and financial violations, are entitled to run again.
