Ashraf Abdelaziz, lawyer for Abdullah Al-Saeed, the pyramids playmaker, revealed that all the friendly solutions he was seeking to achieve between the player and his former club Al-Ahly reached failure.
Abdelaziz said, in telephone statements to the “Al Allaib” program on MBC Egypt: “I was trying to strive for friendly solutions and to meet at one table in order to consider and interpret the contract, and who has the right to obtain it, but each party adheres to its position.”
He added: “All the friendly efforts between Abdullah Al-Saeed and Al-Ahly Club have failed, and therefore each party will follow the legal paths. I was hoping that the friendly efforts between Abdullah Al-Saeed and the great entity of Al-Ahly would succeed.”
He stressed, “I will take a position of neutrality between my little brother and my friend Abdullah Al-Saeed and my home in Al-Ahly Club, and I will not interfere in the case except in the case of reconciliation.”
Abdullah Al-Saeed’s lawyer concluded: “The verdict obtained by Al-Ahly was not informed by the club or Abdullah Al-Saeed.”
