El-Sulaya’s agent: Al Shaab decided to let him go
El-Nahas has confirmed his client being let go in television comments on Abu Dhabi sports channel.
“El Sulaya was performing well but the results weren’t good enough, so the club decided to change managers, and the new manager wasn’t convinced with the player.”
“I’ll travel to the UAE in a couple of days to meet up with the club’s administration and discuss mutual termination of Sulaya’s contract instead of keeping him until the end of the season.”
He added: “The regulations in the UAE state that even if the club decides to let go of a player, he stays with the club without playing so he could earn his full salary, that’s why I’ll try to mutually terminate the contract so he gets to play somewhere else.”
It’s worth noting that Al Shaab appointed Walter Zenga as Tarek El Ashry’s successor. El-Ashry was the one responsible for bring in El-Sulaya to Al Shaab after asking to sign him, but the club decided to appoint a new manager after a run of poor results.
Due to Zenga’s appointment, signing three new foreign players and keeping the French Michaël N’dri, Al Shaab have decided to let Sulaya go because of regulations in the UAE that state four is the maximum amount of foreign players a club can have.
On Sulaya’s future and him possibly joining Al Ahly, El Nahas said: “I don’t know as things aren’t stable in Al Ahly right now due to possible dissolving of the club’s board and I don’t know a specific person who I could talk to in case they wanted to sign the player.”
“It’s possible for Al Ahly to prefer waiting until the end of the season to sign the player on a free transfer. But we’ll try to look for a new Gulf club so he gets to play during the next six months after mutual termination of contract with Al Shaab,” El-Nahas concluded.
