Amr Al-Sulayya, the star of Al-Ahly, throws the “medal” of the African champions
Morocco’s Wydad won the African Champions League title, with a 2-0 victory over Al-Ahly of Egypt on Monday evening, in a match that witnessed great controversy. The controversy began with the decision of the Confederation of African Football to hold the final match in Casablanca, which gave Wydad a great advantage, which emerged in the final match in the presence of a large crowd.
The players and club president Mahmoud Al-Khatib were clearly dissatisfied during the coronation, and Al-Khatib was still upset with the decision during his conversation with the President of the Confederation of African Football after the meeting. As the players left the field, the shot of the star of Al-Ahly and the Egyptian team, Amr Al-Sulayya, who decided to throw his silver medal on the ground before leaving the stadium, emerged.
Before descending into the underground tunnel, Al-Sulayya threw the medal strangely on the ground, and it remained on the field before a security officer picked it up and carried it with him. Most of Al-Ahly’s players also took off the silver medal after being crowned, and decided to carry it in their hands. Reactions to the Al-Sulayya movement varied, among a supporter of Al-Ahly fans, because they considered it a message to express dissatisfaction with the decisions of “Kef”, while others disagreed with him because he “did not have a sportsmanship.”
