Enppi Club confirmed its request to sign Mahmoud Metwally, the first team player in Al-Ahly Club, this summer, in a reciprocal deal that stipulates the transfer of Mustafa Shalaby, the petroleum team’s wing, to the Red Castle.
Sherif Aboul Gheit said in exclusive statements to El-Ahly.com: “There is no reciprocal deal between us and Al-Ahly in Mustafa Shalabi’s negotiations. We cannot conclude a reciprocal deal with Al-Ahly.”
He added: “People should understand this well. There are those who say that Enppi is conducting exchange deals with Ceramica Cleopatra Club, and this does not apply with Al-Ahly, because Enppi officials belong to Zamalek. This is absolutely not true.”
And he continued in his private statements: “We had asked Al-Ahly to contract with Mahmoud Metwally in exchange for Mustafa Shalaby’s transfer to Al-Ahly, and indeed Metwally would have entered into the deal without any problem.”
He continued, “After that, we were surprised that Mahmoud Metwally’s salary is 6 million pounds per season, and the highest salary ceiling in Enppi is 3 million pounds or less. So if we contract with a player who receives this salary, a group will occur in the locker room.”
He continued in his statements to El-Ahly.comTherefore, Enppi Club cannot sign a player from Al-Ahly, Zamalek or Pyramids. We ask for an immediate amount in exchange for any deal.
Sherif Aboul Gheit concluded his statements by saying: “We cannot pay the salaries that Al-Ahly, Zamalek and Pyramids players receive. As for the rest of the clubs, their salaries are close to the salaries that our players receive.”
