Ismail Youssef, a member of the board of the Zamalek Club, denied that Al-Ahly had contracted an Egyptian player that his club wanted to join during the last period, praising the potentials of Alio Dieng, the red genie player.
Ismail Youssef said in his remarks to the Abu Dhabi Sports Channel: “A player that Al-Ahly contracted, I felt they had won it? Alio Diang, just because he is in my position, this is a good player.”
Zamalek player and board member added: “Diang will become a good player, he is a strong player, and the advantage of him is that he is young, and he will be better and better if he gets more experiences.”
He continued: “An Egyptian player who Al-Ahly contracted and we wanted Zamalek to include him? No, there is no, I speak honestly, a surprise to you? Afsha, Al-Ahly (did not hit us) in any player. “
The name of Zamalek Club was associated with his interest in contracting more than one player currently wearing the Al-Ahly shirt, most notably Muhammad Magdi Afsha, Hussein Al-Shahat and Mahmoud Abdel-Moneim Kahraba.
Al-Ahly will face the Zamalek team at the Mohammed bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, UAE, next Thursday, in the Egyptian Super Cup match.
