Ahmed Said: Garrido and leaks started the crisis
Former Al Ahly vice president Ahmed Said speculated on the cause of some of the current problems and discussed the current board of directors situation.
Earlier, five members of Al Ahly’s board refused to accept the designation for the board by minster Khaled Abdel-Aziz and said that they would rather wait for a court rule that confirms whether the board will be staying or not.
“It’s over, the five members will not be returning to the board without a court decision,” Said told radio channel 9090.
“There was disagreement over the philosophy used to manage the club. Alaa Abdel-Sadek’s issue was not among the reasons that led us to leave, but former coach Juan Carlos Garrido, started the problems,” he added.
Said thinks that the board paid the price for working in the new era of the club, since it was held accountable for every little detail because they came right after a stable board that was there for 30 years.
“News leaked from the board caused a lot of conflicts,” Said concluded.
He also ruled out forming an opposing front, assuring that he will always be ready to serve the club.
