Al-Ahly’s Vice President, Al-Amri Farouk, responded to Al-Zamalek’s demands for the title of “Century Club in Africa” that crowned Al-Ahly 20 years ago.
Al-Amri Farouk said in a television interview, in response to the demands of the club Zamalek, “Welcome and easy, in the end, Al-Ahly is the club of the century.”
“Al-Ahly is not seeking a title and is going to prove it, its numbers and championships are what give it titles, and the African Union is the one that granted Al-Ahly club the title of the century club without claims.”
The Zamalek Club has officially announced the formation of a committee to file a complaint for the title of Century Club, which is crowned Al-Ahly Club, and threatened to resort to the Sports Court.
