Walid Al-Attar, Executive Director of the Egyptian Football Association, spoke about the letter that the Football Association sent to the Ministry of Youth and Sports to host several African sporting events, except for the African Champions League final, the subject of Al-Ahly’s recent crisis.
Al-Ahly lost this match in Morocco against Wydad with two goals without a response, on the floor of the Mohammed V compound in Casablanca.
Al-Attar said: “The Egyptian Football Association always sends to the Ministry of Sports to request government approval to organize the combined tournaments for the national teams. When we were preparing this letter, we received a request from Pyramids to organize the Confederation Final, so we attached it to it.”
He added, “Usually, this request is submitted to the national team championships, unless one of the clubs is interested in organizing something like this. Al-Ahly did not send us any request, and if it was sent to us, we would enclose his request in the letter.”
Regarding the accusations that the federation deliberately concealed a letter received from the African Confederation “K” regarding the request to organize the final, he explained, “At the beginning of the tournament, its system is sent to all participants, and everyone knows in advance that the final is only one and there is no back and forth, and its organization will be presented for competition between countries willing to do so.” .
And he continued, “At the beginning of the tournament, its system is sent to all participants, and everyone knows in advance that the final match is only one and there is no return and return, and its organization will be presented for competition between countries wishing to do so.”
Al-Attar continued, “The same thing happened last season, but there was no Moroccan party in the final hosted by Morocco. This year they were very late in determining the stadium.”
He added, “The Egyptian Federation sent several times a sufficient demand to hold the match in a neutral stadium outside the four countries that have representatives in the semi-finals (Al-Ahly – Wydad – Algeria’s ES Setif – Angolan Petro Atletico).”
He explained, “We asked Kaf to do so, and we wrote to the International Federation (FIFA) to intervene as well, and we said that the delay in taking the decision puts Kaf in embarrassment of violating the principles of transparency. After Senegal withdrew, the only offer became Morocco’s, and therefore this was against the principle of equal opportunities.”
Finally, about the rumor that Hani Abu Rida, the former president of the federation, asked to hide the aforementioned letter, he said: “This is a flaw in the right of Abu Rida and a flaw in the right of the recipient… This is not true at all.”
