Mido, Hesham Zakaria, El-Hadary & Mortada tussle in full
The dispute started after a statement from Wadi Degla manager Hesham Zakaria, who said on national radio on Monday: “A lot a lot of Zamalek players want to leave the club and join Wadi Degla because of financial problems Zamalek are facing.”
Many players have asked to leave the White Castle because of overdue wages, but Zakaria’s words provoked Mido, who took to Twitter to blast the players that would think of joining Maged Samy’s club.
“A player that leaves Zamalek to join Wadi Degla has to be examined by the medical staff to see if he is mentally ill,” Mido tweeted.
This tweet set fire to the conflict which made Wadi Degla and legendary Egyptian goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary join the dispute by stating that any player who accepts to play under Mido’s leadership has to be ‘mentally ill’.
In addition, Degla’s head coach returned by saying: “Mido is trying to copy Jose Mourinho with all his mind games but he failed.”
This led to the inclusion of recently elected Zamalek SC president Mortada Mansour on Tuesday by describing Hesham Zakaria as a ‘bodyguard’ and the controversial Mansour, who has recently decided to run for the Egypt presidency, proceeded to mock Essam El-Hadary and his wife.
However, Mortada also said that Mido was wrong with his criticism in the first place, but any action that has to be taken must be through him, and not other personnel.
To end the dispute, Mido tweeted on Tuesday that Maged Samy [owner of Wadi Degla] contacted him and apologized to him for Hesham Zakaria and Essam El-Hadary’s statements.
