“Al-Ahram is a sports service provider and a professional venue; they talk about how to use wealth in Egypt through young people and investors are keen to exploit Egypt's wealth for Egypt's own good," Badry said in an interview with MBC Masr channel.
Signing Brazilian players wasn’t enough for Turki’s club so he signed the Syrian defender, Omar El-Meydani, alongside the Egyptian players; Enppi’s Mohamed Magdy Afsha, Al-Masry’s Mohamed Hamdy, Smouha’s Abdullah El-Bakry and Al-Mokawlon’s Mohamed Farouk.
