Shikabala to stay at Sporting Lisbon


’s president, Bruno de Carvalho, has said that Mahmoud Abdel-Razek ‘’  is staying at the club – despite rumours suggesting otherwise.

Shikabala, who joined the Portuguese side in January, has been heavily linked with a return to Zamalek in recent weeks, and these rumours intensified after he was left out of the club’s Champions League squad.

President, Bruno de Carvalho, said: “There is absolutely no agreement [with Zamalek or other]. Shikabala is part of the Sporting squad, and he will stay at the Alvalade.” Reiterating: “He is not going to Egypt at all.”

Last week, Shikabala’s representative in Portugal, Paulo Faria, was publicly criticised by the club for statements made to Rádio Renascença regarding the player’s future at the Alvalade. Sporting said that they hoped the statements were not “attempts to destabilise the athlete which would prompt him to take any action that distorts his behaviour towards Sporting or in order to force him out of the club.”

Shikabala has made just one competitive appearance for Sporting since his arrival, and it remains to be seen whether he will feature at all this season. He has failed to receive a call-up to any of the club’s games so far.
