Brigadier General Mohamed Morgan, the CEO of Al-Ahly Club, confirmed that there has been no communication by the Football Association and the management of the club regarding the possibility of postponing the top game in the league.
Hossam Al-Zanati, Chairman of the Egyptian Football Association’s Competitions Committee, has stressed in previous statements to Masrawy that there is no intention or reason to postpone the Al-Ahly and Zamalek summit on February 24 in Cairo Stadium.
Murtada Mansour had previously announced his rejection of the date of the summit match, and demanded the temporary committee that manages the Football Association, headed by Amr Al-Janayni, that the match should be postponed in favor of the two teams.
Morgan said, in statements to the “With Schubert” program on “On Sport”: “No one has contacted us, and we have not asked to postpone the summit game, we are ready to play any game at any time.”
Regarding what was raised about filing a protest against the referee, Bakari Jessama, Morjane said: “Each of us knows his role well in Al-Ahly club, of course we have fans who love the club and are looking for their rights, and there is also a management of the ball and a club president and its board of directors love the club and are aware of all matters and have a great awareness.” .
He stressed: “Currently all focus should be on the important game next Thursday against Zamalek in the Super Cup in Abu Dhabi, UAE.”
Al-Ahly is scheduled to play its match with the South African Sundowns in the second leg of the African Champions League quarter-final at the Al-Akhair Stadium on March 7 under the management of Gambian referee Carrie Jasama.
