Zamalek’s board of directors issued an official statement today, Wednesday, confirming its adherence to the cause of the 20th Century Club in Africa, saying that it did not and will not waive what it called “club rights.”
The statement issued by the White Club called on all media professionals and claimants to be experts in the regulations not to involve themselves in this case, especially since any step taken by the club in this file is announced through official means.
The statement read as follows:
The club’s board of directors headed by Counselor Mortada Mansour issued an official statement on his position on the file of the Century Club.
The club’s board of directors stressed that it has not and will not back down from defending the club’s rights in various issues, including the file of the Century Club.
The council affirms that Zamalek’s eligibility to the title of the football team of the century is a creed within all Zamalekawi and that the council rejects the criteria on which Al-Ahly was awarded the title of the Century Club, especially with Zamalek obtaining at that time 9 continental titles, compared to 7 for the red team.
The council calls on all media professionals and claimants to be experts in the regulations not to involve themselves in this case, especially since any step the club takes in this file is announced through official means.
The club has assigned some interested people in this matter, including Zamalekawy 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.
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.
The council concluded its statement by addressing a message to the fans of the club to place their confidence in the club’s board of directors headed by Counselor Mortada Mansour, who did not and will not hesitate to restore the club’s rights and defend it in all cases.
