He declared, “The club has assigned some interested people in this matter, including Zamalekawi, Moataz Al Shami, who lives in the UAE, to follow up on this file and present all the documents and procedures required to a number of specialized experts to escalate this file and obtain the club’s right in this regard.”
And he added, “The club’s board of directors stressed that the failure of the previous councils prevented Zamalek’s right in this file, which was opened by the council and took steps to restore the club’s right, including official letters, including imposing the matter in reality in front of all fans by raising the banners confirming the club’s entitlement to this title.”
He completed “a message to the club’s fans, to place their confidence in the club’s board of directors headed by Mortada Mansour, who did not and will not hesitate to restore the club’s rights and defend it in all cases.”
