ENPPI to donate part of Elmo money to martyrs' families

ENPPI decided to donate an unknown percentage of Ahmed Elmohamady's transfer fee to the families of the Egyptian martyrs.

Around 300 people died during the 18-day revolution that forced ex-president Hosni Mubarak to step down on February 11.

Sunderland have recently paid ENPPI £2.5million to turn Elmo's loan deal into a permanent transfer.

The petroleum side said the donation will be made to 'ease the woes' of the martyrs' families.

"It's just a contribution to ease the woes of the families of those who sacrificed their lives for the sake of their nation," ENPPI's football director Alaa Abdul-Sadek told FilGoal.com.

It's understood that some police forces used live ammunition to disperse the protestors in Tahrir Square, causing a number of young people to die.


On the other hand, Emohamady said he had realized a long-held 'dream' by signing a permanent contract with Sunderland.

"I am very happy to stay with Sunderland for a long time," he told the Premiership club's official website.

"I like the club and I have done ever since I got here. That is why I stay. Everyone is excellent - the club, players and fans.

"I like Mr (Steve) Bruce a lot. He has helped me very much since I arrived here and I think he is a good person and a good manager.

"My fellow players have treated me well; there is a good feeling in the place. We have excellent players and they are excellent outside the pitch too.

"It is a dream for me to play in the Premier League. I have imagined it ever since I was a child. For me it is the best league in the world - strong and quick."
