FilGoal | News | Tariq Yahya: There is no alternative to Sassi.. I did not look at Quarshi’s salary because he was helping Zamalek


Tariq Yahya, head of the football sectors in Zamalek, stressed that there is no alternative to Ferjani Sassi, if the club does not renew his contract, which expires during the current season.

Yahya said on Radio On Sport: “Currently, there is no alternative for Ferjani or not as efficient as him, but a good alternative can be prepared for him next season, such as Dunga of Pyramids or Eze Emika of Al-Masry. We need a player to compete for titles with his team.”

He stressed, “We must take into account the desire of the fans of Zamalek when making any decision, I do not mean to always meet the desire of the fans, but there are players whose degree of public association with them is strong, regardless of their level, such as Shikabala and Sassi.”

He stressed that it is normal for a foreign player to be more expensive than an Egyptian. What is the problem? Why do we bury our head in the sand? The dressing room in Zamalek has always been appreciated and respected… My salary was 300 pounds (280 net pounds), while Quarshi’s salary was 1,300 or 1,500 pounds.

He continued, “Given the events of the current season, it is possible to dispense with one of the guards to impose calm and balance in the team, and to avoid a headache in the head of the technical staff. It is possible to control the same situation in other centers, but the goalkeeper’s situation is difficult, the problem ends with dispensing one of the guards. The three with the return of Mohamed Sobhi from loan, but the continuation of the trio will be a headache for any technical director.”

He revealed, “At the beginning of the current season, I received an offer from Moroccos Saree Oued Zem, but Mortada Mansour, the former club president, stuck to me, and two months ago, another offer from Olympique Safi, and the matter faltered due to flight conditions and I tried to travel through other countries. I am the head of three youth sectors, the school and the academy, We won two titles and exported 10 players to the first team, which is a success in itself.”

He stressed, “I am performing a noble message in response to those who have been afflicted with Alzheimer’s and say that I have no work. Names such as Saif Farouk Jaafar, Ahmed Nader Al-Sayed, Youssef Osama Nabih, Osama Faisal, Hussein Faisal, Mustafa Tariq Mustafa and others. Saif Farouk Jaafar is a distinguished player, but he needs to develop.” Himself “.

He continued, “What is said about questioning the ageing of Zamalek players is a shame. Zamalek is a large and educational institution before it was a sports club. There was an abnormal amount of corruption in the junior sector, and we faced several emperors, but parents and everyone who does not love me repeat rumors about me such as suing 50 thousand EGP for each player registered, although I was not present during the registration period. Zamalek has not won the Republic Championship in the junior sector since Khaled Al-Ghandour’s generation.

He explained, “We won two championships for the Republic for the first time in 20 years. Unfortunately, rumors circulate from within the club, but the sector responded with the utmost ferocity by obtaining two championships for the Republic out of 4 and winning four championships for the four regions. Rumors are repeated by those who want to jump within the junior sector, and to obtain positions, we are exposed to “It was a wild war, but we achieved a resounding success. I don’t like to talk about myself, but sometimes I don’t exonerate myself, but I talk about achievements in response to rumours.”
