Al Ahli back down from plans to sue Mortada Mansour
Mohamed Abdel-Shafy’s Ahli Jeddah backed down on their plans to sue Zamalek chairman Mortada Mansour after he accused the Saudi club of “fraud”.
Mansour had harshly criticized Al Ahli board, labelling them as scammers after the Saudi club have fallen behind on Abdel-Shafy’s transfer fee installments.
Al Ahli’s legal consultants were reportedly assigned by the club chairman to investigate Mansour’s “offensive” comments, and file a case against him at an Egyptian court.
Following Abdel-Shafy’s recent injury, the club decided not to sue the Zamalek president, according to Saudi news reports.
The 30-year-old Egyptian left-back, who is expected to be sideline until the end of the season, picked up a knee injury during the first half of Al Ahli’s match with Al-Khaleej in gameweek 15 of the Saudi Professional League. Swiss manager Christian Gross had to take Abdel-Shafy off during half-time.
Al Ahli medical staff pointed out that the Egyptian international will have to undergo a knee surgery before estimating his absence period.
Abdel-Shafy joined the Saudi club on loan from Zamalek in 2014. After impressing during his one-year stint, Al Ahli acquired the services of the player permanently, on a three-year deal worth $2.8 million.
