Allam: I resigned to save Egyptian Football
After announcing his resignation, Egyptian Football Federation Chairman, Gamal Allam, talked about the reasons behind his decision.
Allam, who resigned from his position after FIFA’s warning to Egypt that it could be suspended from the international football, stated, “I took this decision to save the Egyptian football, especially after FIFA warned to suspend football activity,”.
He added, “I prefer to resign as I fear Egypt could face Kuwait’s fate, which was suspended by FIFA due to government interference.”.
FIFA prohibits any governmental intervention in football matters; as a result, Kuwait was suspended due to an alleged interference from the government.
Allam explained, “When I was attending the last FIFA congress in Mexico, I watched the Kuwaiti officials fall in their efforts to lift the suspension and bring football back to life again.”
The Egyptian Federation board was previously dissolved after a court verdict that dates back to a lawsuit filed in 2013, by Beny Ebeid club president, Hermas Radwan, who challenged the integrity of the 2012’s chairman elections.
