There was drama during the Egyptian Premier League match between El Daklyeh and Pyramids when a police officer stepped onto the pitch to assist the hosts’ injured player at Cairo’s Al-Shorta Stadium on Monday.
Seeing the police officer with a gun in his holster arriving to help attend to the injured El Daklyeh player, some Pyramids players protested against his presence on the pitch.
In a video footage, one Pyramids player could be seen asking the officer to produce his identity while his captain restrained him from the interrogating the policeman.
Meanwhile another player is seen encouraging the officer off the pitch.
