CAIRO, 9 October 2019:Zamalek president Mortada Mansour wants to play their match against Generation Foot in Cairo.
CAF Confederation of African Football (CAF) has officially set the 2nd leg match date between Zamalek and Generation foot to be on October 24th.
"We have been subjected to injustice in the crisis of Generation Foot match despite our commitment to everything concerning the CAF," Mortada Mansour told reporters at Zamalek headquarters on Tuesday.
He continued, "Zamalek did not take any decision on their own, the whole crisis was due to the decision of security and coordination with the CAF."
"I want to hold the game in Cairo in the presence of the fans to motivate the players."
"Also I want to postpone the match with Al-Ahly, the team will not be able to concentrate in two crucial games during that short period."
Zamalek will face Al Ahly on October 19 in the fourth round of the Egyptian league.
CAF has sent a letter to the EFA informing that Zamalek’s match against Generation Foot is delayed from Saturday, September 28, at Petrosport stadium to be played on Sunday, September 29, at Borg El Arab stadium.
Generation Foot refused to travel to Borg El Arab stadium on the following day as they have been informed 24 hours before the original date.

Generation Foot protested against the decision, CAF finally took another decision to replay the match at Borg El Arab stadium.
