Hani Saeed told “On Time Sports”: “Ahmed Fathy is my little brother. I have known him since we used to play together in Ismaili, and our relationship is wonderful.”
He explained, “There was no problem between me and Fathi, but he was upset that he did not play one of the matches, and this is his right. I spoke with him afterwards and informed him that the issue was related to technical matters and he spoke with the coach at the time.”
He continued, “The decision to participate is only for the coach, and we should not talk about it.”
He stressed, “Fathi has the right to feel upset when not participating, and this is nothing wrong with him, on the contrary, despite reaching 36 years, but he maintains his fitness and wants to play.”
He continued, “I do not know the details of the call that brought together Ahmed Hossam Mido (the technical advisor and official spokesperson for the club) and Fathi, because it took place a few minutes before Pyramids traveled to Morocco, and we will sit down with the duo to solve the matter.”
He stressed, “The club does not think of dispensing with Ahmed Fathy, and the news spread is incorrect.
He concluded, “If we have any problem, we will announce it, but there are no problems in the team.”
