The Board of Directors of the Egyptian Al-Ahly Club, headed by Mahmoud Al-Khatib, decided to travel by private plane to Doha to participate in the FIFA Club World Cup that Qatar will host during the period from 1 to 11 February.
The Al-Ahly administration’s decision came, in the interest of the players, and in the application of preventive and precautionary measures, due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus.
Meanwhile, Mahmoud Al-Khatib, club president, will head the team’s mission that will leave Cairo to participate in the world championship, and the travel date has not yet been set, as it will be according to the links related to Al-Ahly’s confrontations at the local and African levels.
Meanwhile, Khaled Murtaji, a member of the council, plays the role of the general coordinator of the mission with the International Federation of Football Association “FIFA”, with regard to administrative and organizational affairs between the two parties.
In a different context, the coaching staff, led by Pitso Musimani, is looking for a contract with a right-back, to strengthen the ranks of the first football team during the last period, after the performance of Ahmed Ramadan “Beckham”, who recently joined the team, declined, and his inability to perform the duties of the center, especially since it is not his original position.
Al-Ahly club received many nominations during the last period, but the most prominent names so far are Karim Al-Iraqi, the Egyptian player Al-Borsaidi, and Karim Fouad, the Enppi player, who is loaned from the star team.
While Amir Tawfiq, director of contracts at Al-Ahly, holds an official negotiation session with Mohamed Sharif, the team striker, in order to renew his contract for the next three seasons.
Al-Ahly agreed in principle with Sherif to extend the contract for three seasons to come, provided that it would be placed in the second category, which would receive a sum of up to 5 million pounds annually.
