Gomaa: We will not beg Ahmed Fathi to renew

Posted on August 17, 2014


Director of football has declared that the negotiations with could be over after the continuous stalling from the defender.

Ahmed Fathi, who has recently returned to Egypt after an unsuccessful trial period at Arsenal, is yet to decide on his future.

Al Ahly have now contacted the 29-year-old right-back, in an attempt to renew his contract with the Red Devils, however, the player has yet to respond, to which Wael Gomaa commented: “We will not beg him [Ahmed Fathi] to renew.”

Fathi is reportedly linked to Ittihad Jeddah of Saudi Arabia and Umm Salal of Qatar which is why the Egypt international is delaying his decision.

It’s well worth mentioning that Zamalek’s president Mortada Mansour claims that the player has already signed for the Saudi Arabian side, a club that has previously shown great interest in Fathi.

In addition, Umm Salal SC have offered Fathi $2 million to continue his football career in the Qatar Stars League.

    Like what the hell has Zamalek to do with an Ahly inside issue. Mortada is a puppet.

    Ahly needs to close this case as Fathi just forgot which club made the player who he is now. It’s non professional to deal with el Ahly with such an idiotic way. And how on earth would a player leave Africa’s biggest club to join a club called ‘Mother of Salal’, money talks! He could’ve resigned in Africa’s biggest at least.
