Al Ahly goalkeeper shared his thoughts regarding the tragedy on Twitter.

The 31-year-old said he would accept the league’s cancellation if it would save human lives.

“If bringing sports in general or football to a halt in Egypt will save lives or prevent disasters, then let it be,” Ekramy tweeted.

He then shed light on the core of the problem, and how if not dealt with correctly, would result in a repetition of the tragedy.

“Sadly, the problem is not football as we have previously learned during the Port Said events, but how to deal with the human soul and the lack of its value in every aspect,” he added.

“If lost souls went unnoticed without punishment, it will always just be mourning on TV, repeated slogans and an annual memorial, and then we prepare ourselves for another disaster,” he concluded.

Ahly are yet to arrange a domestic friendly before they to travel to Blida, Algeria to face ES Seif in the African Super Cup on the 21st of February.

    Unfortunately, our army and corrupt police will always kill innocent people, not only in football. Therefore, it makes no sense to stop the league. The people are being killed elsewhere.
