Hazem Emam stripped of Zamalek captaincy
In preparation for Tuesday night’s game against Talaa El-Geish, Emam showed his frustration at not getting picked for a starting berth against the military side, which started a row between him and the coaches.
The issue cost him the captaincy role, in the process; Zamalek carried out their investigations before deciding to fine him 300,000 EGP.
Emam – a product of Zamalek’s youth academy – was promoted to the first team in the 2008/09 season, staying at the club ever since.
As a result of the sanction, vice captain Mahmoud Abdel-Razek ‘Shikabala’ will take over the 27-year-old’s role as skipper.
