Souleymane Coulibaly has explained the reasons behind his surprising travel to London, claiming that he was forced to pray every time he scored.

The Ivorian forward travelled to England last week without the club’s permission, which made the Red Devils lodge complaint to FIFA against him to preserve the club’s rights.

Al Ahly chairman Mahmoud Taher said that the player has no late dues and was not exposed to any type of injustice during his time in Egypt, however, Coulibaly released a controversial statement, saying that he was treated like a slave.

The 22-year-old added that his team-mates intended not to pass him the ball, and that his family didn’t feel comfortable practicing Christianity in Egypt.

The Egyptian Premier League champions are yet to respond to Coulibaly’s claims, but surely they started looking for his replacement, with Difaâ El Jadidi’s Walid Azaro and Ittihad’s Kabongo Kasongo on their radar.

Al Ahly’s player of the month for April joined the Cairo giants last January from Scottish side Kilmarnock for $800,000 after nearly joining arch-rivals Zamalek.
