Al Ahly’s board of directors have announced some dramatic decisions after their emergency board meeting earlier on Thursday.
The club held a meeting to discuss several important decisions related to the club’s football first team after the recent poor performances and Wednesday night’s VAR drama.
Pitso Mosimane successor Ricardo Soares seems safe, at least for now, with Al Ahly’s leadership seemingly more upset with the match officials as well as the Egyptian Football Association.
As a consequence, the club announced they would not partake in any domestic cup competitions until their demands are met.
The following decisions were taken at the end of the meeting, as announced by the club.
- Calling for the sack of EFA’s refereeing committee due to it being unfair and unjust.
- Requesting the suspension of the VAR referee of our previous league game against Pharco FC until he’s brought to question for his decisions during the game.
- Al Ahly won’t participate in the Egyptian Cup and the Egyptian Super Cup until our demands are met.
- Playing the remainder of the Egyptian Premier League games with our youth squad and our senior players, who recovered from their injuries.
The club also confirmed that president Mahmoud El Khatib would explain the club’s resolutions in more detail “in the next few hours”.
