Zamalek withdraw decision to forfeit league

Zamalek withdraw
Zamalek withdraw their decision to forfeit the 2015/2016 Egyptian Premier League season.

Just one day after Zamalek announced that they will not continue playing in the this season, following the team’s loss against Tala’a El-Gaish on Sunday, the Egyptian champions have gone back on their decision.

The club’s forfeit decision came in protest of the “arbitrary” refereeing in the team’s match against El-Gaish, according to Zamalek’s official statement.

However, the team’s board decided on Monday to withdraw their forfeit decision, after the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) confirmed that forfeiting team will be sent back to fourth tier of football. In addition, the team would have been forced to serve a one-year suspension from league football.

In a press conference on Tuesday, club president Mortada Mansour confirmed that the White Knights will indeed continue the season and play their next match against Ghazl El-Mahalla.

Mohammed Salama is a 20-year-old who fell in love with football since Egypt's AFCON final match against Ivory Coast! Strangely enough an Al Ahly and Al Masry fan locally. In addition, he's a hardcore Bayern Munich supporter.

      Funny enough you are speaking when your team did the exact same thing, but because the league would not let a player they dubiously signed play and suspended him for breaching basic transfer regulations. Was very professional on Ahly’s side. Stop telling yourself lies about one team in Egypt being more professional than another one. Especially when it comes to acting like cry babies and announcing withdrawals here and there, Al Ahly cant be beaten in that category of stupid childish actions.

      The whole country is Coussa. Every domain in the country is Coussa and worse than the pre-revolution state of things. Dont be surprised Football is too. Traditionally football in Egypt have always been Coussa, but at least it had some kind of seriousness to it and a minimum level of professionalism. Nowadays its a free for all with nobody ruling anybody or anything. Just like the rest of the country, a joke.
