The achievements of Mohamed Salah never cease to impress us, with his successful career path, that is rising day by day, and is an inspiration to us all.

Just recently, we have written an article about his latest accomplishment, and that is winning the Golden Boot for the second time in a row. Now, the Egyptian striker has been listed as a candidate for the prestigious France Football magazine’s 2019 Ballon d’Or award, alongside with his two teammates Van Dijk and Sadio Mane. Once again, giving us absolute pride.

The nomination isn’t the only thing giving us pride, but his ranking among big names is yet another remarkable achievement. And he even comes ahead some, in the ranking.

Mo Salah is among the top five players, he comes in fourth place following Argentina and Barcelona Lionel Messi, Van Dijik, Sadio Mane and ahead of Portugal and Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

This is not Salah’s first time to come close to the Golden Ball. Last year, he won 6th place after Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Luka Modric, who took the cup home.

The magazine is set to announce the name of the winner in December 2019.

So until then, we are keeping our fingers crossed; hoping for his win!

Zamalek Club president Mortada Mansour has been suspended for four years. The Egyptian Football Association (EFA), headed by Amr al-Ganainy, has officially notified the International Federation of Association Footbal (FIFA) of the four-year suspension.

An additional letter was sent to the Confederation of African Football (CAF) by officials from the EFA, regarding a penalty against Mansour. The sanctions issued against him include his suspension and a 100,000EGP fine. 

The actions enforced by the committee come in light of several complaints that came against Mansour by several sports federations and clubs, including Al-Ahly Club, the Egyptian Handball Federation, the EFA, and various members of the Zamalek Club.

The committee called on Egypt’s Minister of Youth and Sports, Ashraf Sobhy, in order to apply the penalties in accordance with Article 84 of the Egyptian Constitution and the provisions of Sports Law No. 71 of 2017.

In response to the suspension and penalties enforced, Mansour submitted on Monday an official memorandum against the committee’s decision. 

Ashraf Sobhy said that the memorandum will be looked at and studied examined before making any decision.

Mansour made a statement earlier during an interview with journalist Ahmed Moussa on Egypt’s Sada al-Balad satellite channel that his suspension “will not be implemented and I will continue my work normally,” adding that only the General Assembly of the Zamalek Club has the right to determine his fate.

The confederation of African Football just announced yesterday the postponement of the Africa Cup of Nations until 2022, which was scheduled in 2021.

“After consultation with stakeholders and taking into consideration the current global situation, the tournament has been rescheduled for January 2022. The date for the final tournament and the remaining matches of the qualifiers will be communicated in due course,” a statement read on the CAF website.

The CAF executive committee held a meeting on Tuesday to discuss the fate of the competition amid the outbreak of the virus.

“This decision was taken due to the uncertainties about the coronavirus health situation and especially because of the scheduling problems since four rounds of qualifiers would need to be fitted into the October and November windows for international matches,” CAF President Ahmad Ahmad told a news conference after the meeting.

The Nations Cup was supposed to be held next January in Cameroon, but given that the CAF has postponed three rounds of qualifiers already, the fate of the tournament has become unclear.

All continental sports activities have also been suspended since March due to the pandemic, including the CAF Champions League and the CAF Confederation Cup, which were originally scheduled to be played on 1 May.

We are sure a lot of football enthusiasts are disappointed by the news, but it’s for the best as safety of players and the audience come first.
