An Egyptian goalkeeper decides to retire from football after being accused of spreading the Corona virus
Al-Masry club goalkeeper Ahmed Masoud revealed his decision to retire from football, following the accusations leveled against him of causing the spread of the Corona virus among his colleagues, after he attended his mother's funeral.
The guard said in televised statements to "On Time Sports": "My mother died two days ago, and they talked that I was the reason for transmitting the Corona virus infection to the Al-Masry team camp, as a result of my attending the funeral, but the medical swab that was conducted for the team players, myself included, came positive." Before I went to have another swab on my own, it came back negative. "
He added, "I do not know the reason for this rumor, and I am a reason for that, as there has not been a crisis between me and anyone in the club." He said, "Although I am not currently injured, I will not play football again." It is noteworthy that 21 players were announced infected with the "Corona" virus within the ranks of Al-Masry, which is based in Port Said, which caused the delay of the team's confrontation with the border guards in the Egyptian Football League.
