Zamalek withdraw decision to forfeit league
Zamalek withdraw their decision to forfeit the 2015/2016 Egyptian Premier League season.
Just one day after Zamalek announced that they will not continue playing in the Egyptian Premier League this season, following the team’s loss against Tala’a El-Gaish on Sunday, the Egyptian champions have gone back on their decision.
The club’s forfeit decision came in protest of the “arbitrary” refereeing in the team’s match against El-Gaish, according to Zamalek’s official statement.
However, the team’s board decided on Monday to withdraw their forfeit decision, after the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) confirmed that forfeiting team will be sent back to fourth tier of football. In addition, the team would have been forced to serve a one-year suspension from league football.
