The CAF Disciplinary Board have decided to ban three Zamalek players involved in the scuffles witnessed after the final whistle in the game against TP Mazembe in the CAF Champions League encounter on the 8th June, 2014.

The board have also decided to fine the aforementioned players; Mauritanian striker Da Silva will pay $5000 while the Egyptian duo will part with $3000 each.
The White Knights will now have to make do without them in the upcoming game against Mazembe in late July as they resume their fight for a semi final spot.
