Amir Tawfik: Al-Ahly is the strongest team in Africa without a competitor


Amir Tawfik, Director of Contracts in Al-Ahly Club, said that the Red Genie is the strongest Squad in Africa without a competitor, stressing that he has more than one player in each position, and this is a success for the Planning Committee, especially since all this took place during two and a half years, since the beginning of the restructuring in January 2019.

Amir Tawfiq added, in televised statements, that contracting with Mohamed Magdy Afsha, Percy Tao, Alio Diang and Hussein Al-Shahat is one of the most difficult deals that I have made, and that my Moroccan deal, Badr Banoun and Mahmoud Kahraba, was the easiest.

Tawfiq continued, in televised statements to Al-Ahly channel, that the Red Club’s plan in the coming period is to reduce the number of contracts with each transfer period, instead of contracting with 5 players, contracting with 4 and then 3, and so on.

And the Director of Contracts at Al-Ahly Club spoke about the youth base, saying: “Young players were loaned to other clubs so that they would not feel embarrassed when they were promoted to the first team, but recently we are trying to escalate them from the junior sector to the first team directly.“.

Tawfik continued: “The contracting manager works all year round. We evaluate all positions in our team, and we communicate with the technical director and the planning committee to determine the average age, and we prepare the replacement for the big players a year or two before the contract, a player like Karim Fouad we have been following for a year and a half before he signed.” It is contracted“.

Tawfiq concluded his speech about the contracting method, saying: “It is possible that I object to contracting with a specific player, but he is contracted, or vice versa, in appreciation of the coach’s thought.”
