Al Ahly filed official complaints to the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) and the Disciplinary and Ethics Committee against Zamalek’s youth player, Imam Ashour, and several players from Zamalek’s youth team after their unacceptable behavior following the Cairo derby in the Youth League on Sunday at Al Ahly ground in Nasr City.
Al Ahly attached several clips of the aforementioned players on Monday morning, which portrayed them while insulting Al Ahly Sporting Club, its board members, the club’s former president, and Al Ahly fans.
The complaints highlighted that the insults and abuses of Ashour and his teammates violate the rules and regulations of the EFA and FIFA and could trigger troubles between fans.
The complaints also mentioned that there was no reason for what Ashour and his teammates committed, especially that the game that was held at Al Ahly’s ground and did not witness any controversial events.
However, the player, Ashour, got used to performing such intolerable actions as he previously assaulted Walid Soliman, Al Ahly’s player, during the 2020 Egyptian Super Cup final in the UAE while Soliman was down on the pitch.
The Disciplinary and Ethics Committee suspended the player for 10 games earlier last year, when many believed that his actions required a bigger penalty.
Finally, Al Ahly called for applying the appropriate consequences against the player, to preserve the level of competitiveness and the bilateral relations between Al Ahly and Zamalek, especially that the player is known for his unacceptable behavior, and the previous penalties didn’t stop him from performing such actions.
Moreover, Al Ahly’s legal committee is currently in a meeting to discuss the events of the Cairo Derby, which our youth team won 2-1 in the final fixture of the Youth League on Sunday at Al Ahly’s home ground.
The club’s legal committee is reviewing all the Correspondence between the club and the Egyptian Football Association, EFA, while also going over the rules and regulations of the competition.
The EFA announced on Sunday that a decisive match between Al Ahly and Zamalek SC will be played on April 20 in order to determine the champions of the Youth League.
Finally, the club’s legal committee will report to the football committee and Mahmoud El Khatib, Al Ahly’s President, on the findings of today’s meeting for them to take a decision regarding that matter.
