Walid Soliman plays down Coulibaly effect on Al Ahly
Al Ahly’s winger Walid Soliman expressed his shock after Souleymane Coulibaly’s unexpected departure and controversial claims of mistreatment.
The 22-year-old forward traveled to England without informing the club, before issuing a controversial statement alleging that he departed the Red Castle following ill treatment from his teammates, claiming he was “treated like a slave”.
He also said that Tunisia’s Ali Maaloul and Nigeria’s Junior Ajayi also complained of mistreatment at Al Ahly, before he got into an argument with unofficial Twitter accounts of the two players, who denied his claims. Eventually, he advised African players against joining Arab teams.
“Players were shocked after what Coulibaly did,” Soliman told LTC TV channel. “It is weird that Coulibaly left like that after he scored six goals. No player felt that he was unhappy or anything.”
Soliman assured that the club will not be affected after the Ivorian forward departed adding that Al Ahly’s strikers are top-class.
“We have distinguished strikers and Emad Meteb is the best in Egypt,” he added. “Also, we have other special strikers like Amr Gamal, Junior Ajayi and youngster Ahmed Yasser Rayan.”
