Hisham Ibrahim, Vice President of Zamalek Club, confirmed that the committee will not leave the club’s right, and said: “If the federation wants to give the league to a specific club, it must inform the clubs because of the huge expenses that they bear.”
He added in televised statements: “We are subjected to injustice from most of the federations, and we will not leave the club’s right. We are men of law and the judiciary. Are laws and regulations enacted to punish Zamalek only, excluding other clubs?”
Regarding the Hand Union’s statement, he said: “There are 4 teams in the Hand Cup, and we do not know who will qualify for the final, and yet Al-Ahly was counted as champion of the Cup last season .. There must be fair criteria, and there is collusion and the grievance of Zamalek in favor of Imam Ashour was hidden from the appeal committee.” .

The committee received a letter from the Football Association regarding the legality of Imam Ashour’s participation in the matches, and the association’s response came not to allow the player to participate in matches until after a decision is made on the appeal submitted by the club.
