Zamalek chairman announced on Monday that King Salman of Saudi Arabia has been named as an honorary president of the White Castle. 

The announcement came in conjunction with Salman’s five-day visit to Egypt.

According to the club’s official website, Zamalek decided to grant the honorary presidency to the king in recognition “for his special status among Egyptians, especially after his supportive stances towards them”.

Concurrently, has reportedly paid Zamalek the last installment of Mohamed Abdel-Shafy’s deal. The Saudi club have fallen behind on Abdel-Shafy’s transfer fee installments as Al Ahli owed Zamalek the sum of $1,300,000, from the 21.8 million EGP deal agreed last summer.

According to Saudi reports on Monday, the issue has been finally resolved as Zamalek received their late payments.
