Shika dilemma continues: Shikabala withdraws termination request
Zamalek S.C star Mahmoud Abdel Razek ‘Shikabala’ has withdrawn a letter sent to the club with the aim of terminating his contract.
According to FA spokesman Azmy Megahed, the player has withdrawn another request to terminate his contract after several parties tried to make him change his mind.
Amidst the ongoing controversy regarding players at the club not getting paid by the club – most recently Shikabala, who has come out to say that he hasn’t been payed by the club for a long time.
“Some other players have committed disasters at the club, yet have not been fined as much as I have,” Shikabala told Filgoal.
Zamalek owe the Shikabala around five million Egyptian pounds, according to the player but says he: “I never wanted to harm the club, but only receive a portion of his money if not all of it”
Shikabala is said to have given the club a certain period of time to pay him part of his money. The player took all his personal belongings and left the club after last Tuesday’s training session as the period that was indicated by the player’s agent had passed, and he followed by officially submitting a letter declaring the intention to terminate his contract at the club.
Despite this, Zamalek president Kamal Darwish has come out to deny the letter sent by the player saying that it was not signed by the player.
“The letter hasn’t been delivered yet to the FA headquarters and it isn’t signed by the player himself. How am I to acknowledge such thing? It might be real, but we have to wait and see if it is or not.”
Darwish also stated that the former Al Wasl player owes them 900 thousand Euro’s – the equivalent of three million Egyptian pounds, due to a fine imposed by FIFA on the club after the player joined the Whites in 2007 from Greek side PAOK Thessaloniki.
