An Egyptian coach prevents his players from entering the locker room between the halves for a strange reason

Tanta Al-Masry coach Reda Abdel Aal sparked widespread controversy after he refused his players to enter the dressing room during the match that brought his team together with FC Egypt, yesterday, Saturday, in the Egyptian Football League and ended in a negative tie, due to the "occurrence of strange things inside the room" such as magic And sorcery, as he put it.

Egyptian media quoted the Egyptian Radio Youth and Sports a statement by Abdel-Al, in which he said: “I used a sheikh to read the Holy Qur’an inside the dressing room, and this is normal, especially since it is my first match with the team, but the sheikh told me that he saw strange things happening inside the room.”

Abdel-Al explained, "My body shuddered, so I refused to enter the players room between the two halves of the match."

Cameras showed pictures of Tanta players receiving instructions from their new coach Abdel Aal in the stadium, while FC Egypt players entered their dressing room.

The former Al-Ahly and Zamalek star added: "The FC Egypt match was highly watched, because I was coach of Tanta, so that some fans in Canada and America informed me that they would watch the match for this reason."
