Egypt’s FA suspends Al Ahly trio following Entag game

Posted on May 2, 2017



The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) has suspended Al Ahly coach, his assistant, and skipper following the Red Devils match against Entag El-Harby.

The eventful match, which ended in a 1-1 draw, saw Al Ahly manager Hossam El-Badry sent to the stands for a disrespectful gesture towards referee Mahmoud Ashour. In addition, Al Ahly captain Hossam Ashour was shown the red card after the final whistle.

The EFA’s Competition Committee announced on Tuesday that El-Badry has been hit with a two-game ban and an EGP 10,000 fine after being sent off for objecting the referee’s decision in “an unacceptable way”. Meanwhile, Ashour has been suspended for four games for unsporting behaviour towards the referee.

The committee has also imposed a fine of EGP 5,000 on the 31-year-old midfielder.

Al Ahly assistant coach Sayed Moawad has also been banned for eight games and fined EGP 10,000 for pushing the referee after the match.

Meanwhile, Entag El-Harby coach Mohamed Abdallah has been suspended for one game after he was sent off for objecting decisions made by the referee. The club have been fined EGP 5,000 after the players, manager, and coaching staff collectively objected the referee’s decisions, which wasted the game’s time.

Although the draw with Entag put an end to Al Ahly’s seven-match winning streak, the Cairo giants remain on top of the table with points 68. Entag are 14th with 25 points.
