Behind the scenes of the dressing room.. an argument between Magdy Abdel Ghani and Fathi Mabrouk


The club’s locker room always witnesses many scenes, some of which are revealed, while many of them remain as secrets that no one knows anything about, and these scenes often have a major role in many important decisions that may affect the future of some players, because the club’s locker room Team clothing is the “kitchen” from which the first spark of important decisions and strong instructions emerges, and it also has a role in achieving victories and ascending to the podium, as well as having a role in receiving defeats and losing championships, as the dressing room witnesses loud discussions at times and Hazar connections at other times. Therefore, in the context of the following report, we will present the scenes of some of what is happening in the Egyptian football dressing rooms.

A major crisis occurred inside Al-Ahly’s dressing room years ago, and the crisis brought together the duo, Magdy Abdel-Ghani and Fathi Mabrouk, when they played in Al-Ahly, as Magdy Abdel-Ghani confirmed in previous statements that what happened between him and Fathi Mabrouk caused the signing of a fine on him..

Abdel-Ghani said, “We were playing in the final of Africa in Gabon in the eighties of the last century. We lost in the first leg by a clean double, but we won in Cairo by a clean three to win the African title.”

The bulldozer added, “During receiving the African Cup, I was surprised by the masses receiving bricks towards me, and then I returned the bricks again to the stands. So Fathi Mabrouk came from the team’s support apparatus at that time, and a dramatic quarrel broke out between me and him and then attacked him after he clashed with me with his hand, and the matter developed and a major suffocation occurred, and I confess That my reaction was violent because I refused Fathi Mabrouk’s behavior with me, as I was an important player in the team, and Mabrouk should not deal with me in this way.”

Magdy Abdel-Ghani confirmed that this crisis caused the signing of a fine against him by Hassan Hamdi, the football director of the team at the time, and I was also suspended until the end of the season, and I objected to this decision and said to Hassan Hamdi, “This is an unfair decision because Fathi Mabrouk is the one who started the crisis with me.” I also told the club’s management, “You are so invalidating me in football,” but Hassan Hamdy told me, “You made a mistake and must be punished.”
