The current president of Zamalek provokes the anger of his traditional rival, Al-Ahly.
This comes due to the financial pressures regarding salaries in the Parisian club, with the presence of the Brazilian Neymar, the French Kylian Mbappe, the arrival of the Dutch Jorginho Wijnaldum and the Spaniard Sergio Ramos.
As well as the Moroccan international player Ashraf Hakimi, whose management paid $60 million to join him, and the approach of contracting with Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
