Hussein: Fans’ return almost impossible

Posted on July 9, 2016

 competitions committee head has ruled out the possibility of fans return to the stadiums in the foreseeable future.

Clashes broke out between Al Masry and players and staff following the draw that prevented the Port Said club from automatic qualification to the 2017 Confederations Cup.

“I’m against the fans return to the stadium in the league as things stand; it is impossible and it means bringing Egyptian football to another stop,” Amer Hussein said to TV channel ONTV.

“We see angry comments, clashes and fights following every game and no team can accept a loss; what would happen if spectators were present in the stadiums?” he continued.

“The current anti-hooliganism laws are enough but it isn’t up to [the Egyptian Football Association] to enforce them. We have seen what happened in the Ahly-ASEC match in the presence of the fans,” Hussein concluded.
