Books- Moataz Amr:
Amer Hussein, the former head of the competitions committee in the Football Association, stressed the difficulty of implementing Belgium’s scenario in the Egyptian league.
Press reports yesterday indicated that the Belgian League recommended that the domestic league championship be terminated despite one round remaining at the end of the competition, and that Bruges be declared a champion for the 2019/2020 season.
Amer Hussain said in exclusive statements to “Masrawy”: “It is impossible to implement the Belgium scenario by adopting the results of the first round, because it was also not completed the first round, and that idea should not be presented.”
He added: “There is still an opportunity to complete the league, as the postponement of the Olympics gave comfort, in the event of the end of the Corona crisis in Egypt.”
He concluded: “In the case of canceling the league, the determination of the African participants will be adopted from the previous league in my opinion, and the results of the rest of the scores will be canceled, as well as the relegation to the second section.”
