Schubert said, through his sports program, on Tuesday: “There is a case of question marks or questions, what is happening in the ongoing meeting between Al-Ahly’s board of directors headed by Mahmoud Al-Khatib and Pitso Musimani, through a meeting via Zoom, what I did was that the meeting was scheduled for two days, and Musimani will arrive.” Cairo next Thursday, and this gave question marks to Al-Ahly officials, because I have a match on the 12th in the Egypt Cup, which is from last 30 until June 9, so this is a long absence.”
Schubert added: “You feel that there are question marks in it, and some said: Will the meeting witness the end of the relationship? Certainly not, but it is witnessing a strong and violent dialogue, away from statements and words, but it will witness strong words from the Football Association and the Planning Department, and I personally criticized the length of the vacations for the players, and the meeting for extreme frankness between Mosimane and the various Al-Ahly administrations.
Schubert continued: “There is a comprehensive policy change in terms of the football team and its technical staff in the coming period. This is a statement on my responsibility, and the administration will keep in mind the follow-up, monitoring and standing on every small and big thing because the team cannot afford to lose another championship, and building trust between the management body is an important matter. Very, and there are words that must be understood between the lines, and we will see in the end what the meeting will produce.”
