Al Ahly: Emad Meteb is an important player for us
Al Ahly director of football Sayed Abdel-Hafiz stressed the importance of Emad Meteb for the team, adding that the internal situation at the club is stable.
Veteran striker Emad Meteb complained on Monday about being given limited playing time with Al Ahly in the past few seasons and expressed his intention to leave the club if he continued to be excluded from the line-up.
“The current internal situation at the team is healthy and stable and this remains the club’s administration main concern,” Abdel-Hafiz told DMC TV channel. “Any player with a complaint or an inquiry must discuss it internally with us first. The club’s interest comes first and then come’s the player’s interest.”
Abdel-Hafiz refused to discuss Meteb’s statements, yet confirmed that the team needs the veteran striker in the current phase, saying he’s “an important player for the team.” He added that Meteb’s contract was renewed two weeks ago following a request by the technical staff.
Abdel-Hafiz concluded by directing a message to all players and teams saying: “Winning the league is the most important goal right now.”
Al Ahly currently top the league table on 52 points, four clear of second-placed Misr El-Maqassa who played an extra game.
