Therefore, in the context of the next report, we will present the scenes of some of what is happening in the Egyptian football dressing rooms.

Amir Abdel Hamid, the former Al-Ahly goalkeeper, recalled the tape of his memories inside the Red Castle and the moment he met Imad Miteb, the former Al-Ahly striker, in the locker room, saying: “Most of my time in Al-Ahly I slept with Imad Miteb in one room, and I remember the first time I saw him. Broken and crying in Al-Ahly, and I told him that he will recover and become a big player, because I was hearing about a talented player in Al-Ahly youth named “Imad Al-Mutab” and the friendship between us continues to this day. He is a balanced, sane, calm and respectable person.

Amir Abdel Hamid adds, "My journey in Al-Ahly began many years ago when my brother brought me the playing form for Al-Ahly, and I did not believe at the time that my dream might come true. Cairo, but he would have preferred to sit with us, and when we worked, he made a contract with the club. Each of us took an apartment and took his family with him.”

And the Al-Ahly goalkeeper continued, “The first contract in Al-Ahly was worth 50 thousand pounds, and I signed five years with Alaa Abdel-Sadiq, after the incident of Hani Saeed escaping from the junior sector in Al-Ahly. The colors of the cars are the same, the color and white, although in Laiba a lot of people like to get red and white cars, for example Khaled Bebo had a red car.”

Amir Abdel Hamid adds: “I used to see Captain Schubert say I will come today to make a contract for his uniform and play in his place because of my love in it. I did not have any satisfactions, but our Lord honored me with rewards for many championships. I used to stay up late at home, but in the match camps, I slept early.”
