"The Egyptian League can't continue until October or November since all international breaks and African tournaments will conclude on 12 July," Diab addressed the speculation during a television program.

"The Egyptian League will be concluded in mid-August," he said.

"We have made every effort to ensure the league's schedule accommodates all postponed matches from the initial rounds," Diab concluded.

Currently, Enppi holds the temporary top position in the league table with 23 points after playing 13 games this season.

However, reigning champions Ahly find themselves in 10th place with 14 points from only six games due to their involvement in continental tournaments.
