Ahmed Schubert’s Rare Critique of Egypt’s Al-Ahly Management

Sports journalist Ahmed Schubert sharply criticized the board of directors of the Al-Ahly club, headed by Mahmoud Al-Khatib, after Al-Ahly tied goalsless with his counterpart El-Gouna in the match that brought them together at the Khaled Beshara Stadium in El-Gouna, in the postponed meeting of the ninth round of the championship of the Egyptian league.

This is one of the rare occasions when Schubert has criticized Egypt’s Al-Ahly management, as he is the media closest to Al-Ahly Club president Mahmoud Al-Khatib.

Schubert said in his radio program: “What I see as I say, Al-Ahly is the most missed group, for El-Gouna from 6 to 7 chances achieved, and for Smouha 9 chances achieved, and you feel that something is wrong, Is there a club spirit missing? “You should know that Al-Ahly’s last 9 matches in the league have only won 3 matches. Is this reasonable or logical for the team whose championship favorite is the General League?”

He added: “When we see the players of Zamalek and Shikabala and the youth like Saif Farouk Jaafar and Imam Ashour go to the stadium, what do they do? That has to be taken into account. The ball has changed and the shape has changed. Give young people a chance, and I gave an example to Vinicius Junior, Real Madrid player, Pedri, Barcelona star and Al-Ahly. “He needs an expert eye to be chosen so that he can manage the problems and gaps he has, especially in the offensive aspect.”

And he continued: “The balance is up, the rescue is over and the Al-Ahly fans are putting their hands on their hearts because of the fluctuating results, and you have strong matches against Pyramids and lose points. His position in winning the league will be very difficult, the only good thing is that the net of Al-Ahly has not been shaken in the past matches, there is a wrong and incomprehensible need. With Al-Ahly, and it is no problem for Al-Ahly to lose I I’ve been running the league championship for a year or two and it happened when I was playing, and Al-Ahly has a series of matches like Future, Pyramids and then Zamalek, the lower stage will be difficult and re-evaluation and calculations will be required.”

In his television program, Schubert made rare criticisms of the Al-Ahly council, saying: “There is a planning committee in Al-Ahly headed by Mohsen Saleh, and a board of directors headed by Mahmoud Al-Khatib and the membership of Hossam Ghaly and a football company headed by Yassin Mansour and the membership of Mustafa Murad Fahmy and Alaa Abdel-Sadeq Are all these positions formal or do they work in practice And they nominate players to join the red team just like Walid Salah al-Din , Muhammad Fadl and Amir Tawfiq, the director of contracts in the Red Castle, as I had previously confirmed that he had terminated the agreement with the Moroccan Sofiane Rahimi, on all the details of his joining Al-Ahly, but Musimani refused to sign the player and applied for the contract. How are you going to work with Mozambican Luis Miccione in the coming period?”

And Schubert added: “I am surprised that Al-Ahly is this way and this way. I think that Al-Khatib, Hossam Ghaly and Mohsen Saleh must act quickly and take action to improve the situation.”

Schubert concluded his statements: “Al-Ahly lost about 30 chances in the last three games, and this is a very large number for a team the size of Al-Ahly, and I don’t like to talk about magic and business. is not true, you win with your performance and effort on the field.”

Al-Ahly continued to squander points in the Egyptian Premier League with a 0-0 draw with host El-Gouna on Tuesday in a postponed game.

Al-Ahly took one win in the last four games of the competition and three wins in the last ten games in the competition.

After the draw, in the second game led by new Portuguese coach Ricardo Suarez, Al-Ahly remains in third place and has 45 points from 21 games, six points behind his rivals, leader Zamalek, who have two more played matches.

Pyramids is in second place, four points behind Al-Ahly, who lost 3-2 to Smouha in the previous game in the competition.
