He continued: “There is one committee in the Zamalek club, and we are studying with the ministry’s advisers the situation and what should be taken after the administrative inspection in Zamalek, and upon its completion we will announce the results, and we do not exercise any means of pressure on any institution.”
The Minister of Sports concluded, saying: “The ministry’s ultimate goal is to preserve the major sporting entities, and what I mean by preserving the entity is the need to preserve the institution, activity and tournaments, and in the end the law prevails.”
