The Ministry of Interior have reportedly agreed to the joint Ultras statement which was issued on Sunday night, regarding their presence at football grounds.

“We announce to everyone that we do not approve your presence at the football grounds. We do not want the Ministry of Interior in the stands. Your carelessness is what led to this mess!”.
According to Ministry spokesman, Major General Hani Abdel-Latif, the ministry are ready to leave the football grounds for good.
Speaking to Al Nahar Sports channel, Abdel-Latif labelled the idea as a a “great one”.
“It’s a great idea,” he said. “Now we can focus on other tasks.
“The clubs have to work now to enforce such an idea”.
It’s also worth noting that Al Masry’s Ultras Green Eagles did not feature in the statement.
