Mortada Mansour: El-Hadary used genies and ghosts to protect his goal
Legendary Egyptian goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary kept making one save after the other against Zamalek in arguably his best performance for Degla this season, but couldn’t keep them from scoring the equaliser in the 93rd minute.
“Zamalek were great today but El-Hadary’s net was locked by genies and ghosts, and he has been doing that for a really long time,” said the Whites’ chairman Mortada Mansour said on CBC television after the match.
“Of course he did a great job today but there were bizarre misses from open-goal chances, so that wasn’t totally him. It was the help of his little demons.
“I am not kidding. I want to tell you that El-Hadary uses ghosts and demons to stop it [the ball from going in] and that’s enough.
“I know the sheikh [sorcerer] that you deal with to help you with these paranormal forces. He is from a Southern-Arab state,” Mortada concluded.
Mortada, who was running for Egypt’s presidency, also mentioned that the fans will be allowed to attend games again after discussions with minister of Youth and Sports along with the Interior minister.
“The fans will have to sign a form to accept thorough personal search by the police for their own safety and security to avoid a riot incident or a terrorist attack.”
