“The relationship between Ahly and Zamalek is very good, and has roots and mutual respect, even if some unusual things happen. Our relationship with Zamalek will remain distinguished and no one’s behavior will harm it.”

“We call on the fans of Ahly, Zamalek, and all Egyptian clubs to reject fanaticism, and for the competition to be on the field only… Egypt’s interest comes before anything else. Our country at this time needs everyone to come together. Our actions and decisions as officials must help to reject fanaticism,” he concluded.
