head coach has denied claims that he had blocked ’s move to last summer.

Refaat was reportedly on the White Knights’ radar during the 2015 summer transfer window, as Zamalek officials have expressed their interest in signing the 21-year-old winger.

“It’s not true that my refusal to Refaat’s departure to Zamalek was because I played for Al Ahly. Refaat is a young player and we had no alternatives to take over his position if he had left,” Ramzy told 9090 radio program.

Ramzy said that his decision wouldn’t have changed if Al Ahly were the ones interested in signing Refaat.

“He is still young and ENPPI can make a huge investment out of his talent in the future. If Al Ahly had requested his services last summer, I would have rejected as well,” Ramzy said.

Ramzy, however, blamed Refaat for being lazy, saying that his laziness is the reason behind not playing on regular basis.

“He doesn’t take training seriously as he is a bit lazy and needs to work better than this,” Ramzy added.

The former Al Ahly player concluded his interview saying that he aspires to coach Al Ahly one day.
