The competitions committee of the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) imposed an EGP 25,000 fine on Zamalek and suspended team’s striker for one game.

The committee’s decision came as a result of the inappropriate conduct of Zamalek players and coaching staff during Misr El-Maqassa game, which ended in a 3-1 victory for the White Castle.

Zamalek were fined EGP 20,000 for using insulting language towards the referee following Maqassa’s controversial goal. They were fined an additional EGP 5,000 for entering the pitch after Bassem Morsi was sent off.

The Zamalek striker was suspended for one game after being shown the red card during his team’s encounter with the El-Maqqasa. The EFA’s suspension decision means that Morsi will miss his side’s match against ENPPI on Thursday.

Zamalek currently sit second in the league table on 60 points, five away from leaders Al Ahly, who face Contractors on Wednesday.
