Alaa Wahid, the Ismaili spokesperson, confirmed that the team had strong motives against Zamalek, noting that the club had filed a complaint against Tunisian Fakhr El Din Ben Youssef, a former Dervish player.
Ismaily will be a guest to Zamalek tomorrow, Monday, at the Cairo International Stadium, at the conclusion of the Egyptian Premier League for the current season 2019/2020.
Alaa Waheed said, in television statements to the “BE ON TIME” program on the “On Time Sports” channel today, Sunday: “There are several motives against Zamalek, the most important of which is correcting the course before the resumption of the Arab Championship.”
He added: “We also want to achieve victory in the Zamalek match to end the league in a way that is satisfactory to the masses, and there is a great incentive for the players to win.”
He continued: “There is a third motive, which is that every player in Ismaili wants to prove his capabilities to the Brazilian coach Ricardo, because there is a report that is being prepared that will affect the continuity of some players with the dervishes.”
He stressed: “We did not issue problems to the Football Association after bringing forward the date of the match because of our desire to support Zamalek, and we are preparing for the confrontation, which will be one of the most beautiful matches in the league, and we promise the fans to appear well.”
Alaa Waheed concluded, saying: “The Ismaili filed a complaint against Fakhr El Din Ben Youssef to preserve his rights, because the player received his dues but did not complete the agreed period until the end of the current season, as he wanted to renew with amounts that the Ismaili saw exaggerated, so that the player decided to leave and travel to Tunisia. “.
