Omar Rabie said during statements on the “Al-Match” program on “Sada Al-Balad” channel: “I obtained permission from Mahmoud Al-Khatib in order to run in the elections, and I did not offer him to join his list because the president of Al-Ahly did not initiate that.”

He added: “I told him of my desire to run in the elections, so he replied, saying: It is your right and Al-Ahly belongs to all of us.”

He continued, “I received an offer when I was a player in Al-Ahly from Real Madrid in 2006 to take a test there in the c-team. My father and I went to Mahmoud Al-Khatib to ask his permission, as he was responsible for the ball in the club at the time, and we complied with his desire at the time to refuse, even though it was an irreplaceable opportunity.”

He continued: “My financial capabilities do not help me to make millions in advertising, but advertising is not enough to convince a club member, and personal communication is the most important thing.”

He continued: “I ran in the Al-Ahly elections in 2017, and at that time obtained more than 7,300 votes, which confirms that there is confidence in me among the members of the General Assembly, which prompted me to go through the experience again.”

And he added: “The votes I got in the previous elections were great because I am an independent candidate, among two large lists, one for Mahmoud Al-Khatib and the other for Mahmoud Taher. I preferred to go through the past experience despite its difficulty and relied on the good reputation that my father left me in Al-Ahly Club.”

He concluded: “In the last elections, my father and I were only standing in the middle of two lists supported by big stars and with a large crowd, so what I got in the last elections was very big.”
