Al Ahly’s former honorary president Turki Al-Sheikh on Tuesday conveyed a warning message to the Red Devils’ board of directors to return an amount of 288 million pounds, which he donated to the club.
He accused the club’s board of directors of not spending the money in the prescribed ways.
The former Pyramids’ president gave the club seven days to return the money.
On June 2, Al Ahly’s board of directors decided to remove Turki Al-Sheikh’s name from the club’s honorary presidency list.
During the recent days, arguments broke out between both sides, which led to dispute between the former Chairman of Saudi Arabia’s Sport Authority and Al-Ahly board member Mohamed Serag Eddin on social media platforms.
In a statement, the board of directors said all board members agreed on accepting Al-Sheikh’s resignation from his post.
On May 25, 2018, the former Pyramids president submitted his resignation from Al Ahly ‘s presidency, before resigning once again in March.
Al Sheikh was announced as the honorary head of the Al-Ahly Sports Club in a press conference after the 2017 match. The title was awarded in recognition for his contributions to a number of the club’s deals and projects.
