A member of the Emirates team for people of determination to lift weights, fan of Al-Ahly youth team, Adel Hassan Ali, decided to abandon the area designated for people of determination to sit in the Zabeel stadium, and go to the stands with the supporters of Al-Ahly youth without the "wheelchair", to support his team from the stands during the final Arab Gulf Cup yesterday in front of victory.
The 30-year-old used a group of his friends and fans of Al-Ahly youth to help him head to the stands, leaving the wheelchair and the use of crutches, to live in an atmosphere of encouragement among Al-Ahly's youth supporters.
Adel told «Emirates Today» that he has been encouraging Al Ahly youth since 2002, and for 18 years he did not leave him a match in the finals except he was present in it along with many other matches in the local competitions.
He added: “The real pleasure in football is to watch the matches from the stands. I am very surprised when I find the heat of encouragement on the part of the fans on social media without having a presence in the stands. This is something that we must stop and contribute to the development of the Emirates football system, which "It desperately needs public support."
He revealed some of the suffering suffered by people of determination in attending the stadiums, stressing that there are stadiums (without naming them), as there are no facilities for this category. He said: "I sometimes have to go to the stadiums where there are no facilities for people of determination two hours before the matches, this is a bit difficult, but the effects of fatigue disappear with watching Al-Ahly youth playing and winning."
And Adel expressed his admiration for the victory, and said: «The dean is one of the teams that perform in the recent period in an ideal way, and he gave the masses, regardless of their affiliation, the real pleasure.
Adel expects, at the end of his statements, that Al-Ahly youth will win the Arab Gulf League, saying: If we win Sharjah in the next round of the league, we will say Congratulations to Al-Ahly's youth.
