Ikrami said, in statements to the “Al-Laib” program on MBC Egypt: Before I think about guarding the Pyramids goal; I first thought about the place, would it help me and find psychological relief. When I announced my departure from Al-Ahly, the Pyramids officials spoke to me. Therefore, it is natural that I have an opportunity, and Ahmed El Shennawy and Mahdi Suleiman are the guards of Pyramids are like “my little sisters.”
He continued: I decided to leave Al-Ahly in February. Because of the difficulty of getting a chance with the presence of El Shennawi, because after returning from the World Cup, it was natural for El Shennawy to play. We played the Arab championship and lost, and El-Shennawi was injured afterwards, and after my family came I went back to the bench, and I felt that I was not a little guard, and this would be the scenario with me, so I decided to leave.
He continued: Mohamed El-Shennawy is the best goalkeeper in Egypt now, and I consider them all my brothers.
He continued: “Rene Fyler adhered to travel before competing in the CAF Champions League, and Al-Ahly requested to renew his contract for a year to ensure his return again, before Rene Fyler refused to set these terms and conditions.”
