Zamalek boycott local media following Mortada ban
Zamalek have announced the club will be boycotting local media in retaliation to the media’s ban on Mortada Mansour.
Following the Egyptian media’s decision to ban Mortada Mansour, the board of Zamalek SC decided on Friday to prohibit any member of the administrative structure of the club, the technical staff or players to deal with any local newspaper, website or television channel, the club’s official website announced.
“Mortada Mansour has the full support of the club’s board of directors as Zamalek’s president and a parliament member,” Zamalek said in the statement.
The statement also pointed out the club’s achievements during this recent period, which led to those at Zamalek to have ‘full’ admiration and support to the president Mortada Mansour.
“Under the presidency of Mansour, the club is proud of many accomplishments and titles after many failures,” continued the statement on the club’s official website.
“As a result, the board of directors decided to express its full support to the president and the club representative Mortada Mansour by boycotting any local newspaper, website or channel, and also preventing any technical staff member or player to make any comments or statements to the media.”
It’s worth noting that this decision comes after Zamalek’s announcement to call for a press conference on Saturday to unveil the club’s new coach Marcos Paqueta.
