Chairman of Saudi Sports Authority  will be moving forward with lawsuits filed against Al Ahly according to his lawyer Mohamed Hamouda.

Al-Sheikh stepped down as the honorary president of Al Ahly back in May and threatened to file multiple lawsuits against the Red Devils’ board.

Recently, Al-Sheikh announced that he will be dropping all lawsuits against Al Ahly, claiming that he forgave the club’s board members.

However, Al-Sheikh’s lawyer Mohamed Hamouda has now said that he will not be dropping any lawsuit against Al Ahly, saying: “After Turki Al-Sheikh’s respectful approach to drop any lawsuits against Al Ahly, the feedback we received was unacceptable.

“Based on the reaction we received, we will be moving forward with all lawsuits. Everyone who has come out and insulted Turki Al-Sheikh on social media will also be held accountable for their actions.

“If the club withdraws from the Arab Championship now, they will have to pay a $2m fine as the bylaws state,” Hamouda told Ahmed Shobeir on TV channel Sada El-Balad.

Shobeir had previously revealed that Saudi company Sela Sport have decided to withdraw from their four-year sponsorship deal with Al Ahly that is worth L.E 500m.

Hamouda has commented on that by saying: “Sela Sport decided to pull the plug on this deal because of Al Ahly’s board, who are responsible for the loss of L.E 500m, that is the value of the sponsorship deal we had.”
