Kamal justified El-Ashry’s actions by explaining how the latter feels regarding Hilal’s exist from the CAF Champions League.

“El-Ashry believes that he is unjustly blamed for Al-Hilal’s leaving the CAF Champions League; given that he took charge only 20 days before the kick-off of the African competition,” Kamal said.

A medical student who loves football. Any free time I have is usually dedicated to football. I support Al Ahly and Real Madrid (Al Ahly comes first of course). Contrary to popular belief, I believe that females enjoy football as much as males do; I am a living proof :D Proud that I am writing for King Fut.
