CAIRO: Egypt’s ambassador to Rabat Ehab Gamal el-Din apologized to the chairman of Moghreb Tétouan and the mayor of Tétouan for “riots” perpetrated by Ultras Ahlway Sunday in Morocco, Youm7 reported.
After the fans of Africa’s top football club, Al-Ahly, threw flares and fireworks into the pitch, injuring a policeman, Gamal el-Din headed to the club and to the town council to meet with Abdemalek Abroun, chairman of the Moroccan football club, and Mohamed el-Yaakoubi, mayor of Tétouan.
Some 65 members of the hardcore fan group Ultras Ahlway attended the match in the first leg of round 16 of the African Champions League. However, their behavior outraged the delegation of Al-Ahly to Morocco, especially after Moroccans delivered a warm reception to the Egyptian club, according to Youm7.
Moghreb Tétouan won 1-0 in the last minute of the game at Saniat Rmel stadium.
