Ahmed Mujahid, head of the tripartite committee in charge of managing the Football Association, revealed the scenes of the failure of Mohammed Al-Shennawi, Al-Ahly goalkeeper.
Ahmed Mujahid said in an interview with Sada Al-Balad TV: “The Football Association has the right to review the decisions of the Competitions Committee and amend them, and at the Football Association’s meeting, the Referees Committee was called, which said that the referee should have punished Al-Shenawi administratively by giving him a yellow card, and it will be his second in the match.” .
And he continued, “Therefore, he will be sent off and then subject to suspension for one match, and therefore this was the correct decision that the referee had to apply in the match.”
He explained, “My talk about reducing Al-Shenawi’s penalty because he is on the verge of a national mission with Al-Ahly in the FIFA Clubs World Cup has been cut and published in a wrong context.”
And he stressed, “The decision to reduce Al-Shenawi’s penalty came unanimously within the Football Association.”
And he continued in his statements, “I do not think that the reduction of the penalty of Mahmoud Wadi, the Pyramids striker, for catching up with the Al-Ahly match, was intentional. This matter only came by chance.”
The new sanctions list and the periodic table
Mujahid revealed, “Within days, the new sanctions list will be approved, after its amendment, and it will be sent to the clubs.”
“The rest of the league table will also be announced until the end of the competition, after coordination with the security and technical staff of the Egyptian national team,” he added.
Regarding the fact that the unified ball was canceled for league matches, he said: “I do not know where the talk about canceling the unified ball for the league came from. The ball continues in all matches and there is no truth to these statements
He talked about the possibility of canceling the football season, saying: “The maximum end of the Egyptian season will be September 30th, and God willing, the season will be completed naturally by the Egyptian League, the Egyptian Cup and the Super Egyptian.”
And he added, “The only reason to cancel the football season in Egypt is that this is the vision of the Egyptian International.”
And about the summit between Al-Ahly and Zamalek, he said: “I cannot announce the date of the summit match until after obtaining security approvals for the date of the match.”
And he continued in his statements, “The decision to increase Hossam Al-Badri’s salary was agreed upon in the coach’s contract with the previous council of the Football Association, and only it was postponed for a period.”
He concluded his remarks, “Maradona is the greatest touching the ball in the world, and the greatest touching the ball in Egypt, Mahmoud Al-Khatib. I am honored to deal with Counselor Emad Abdel Aziz, President of Zamalek, but until now we meet.”
