Zamalek fined $15,000 by CAF for Enyimba match rescheduling


has hit Zamalek with a USD 15,000 penalty for rescheduling their Champions League match against Enyimba, KingFut can confirm.

The 2016 CAF Champions League Group B match between Zamalek and Enyimba was supposed to take place on Sunday, August 14.

However, the date was changed twice, finally settling on Monday, August 15.

Consequently, the Nigerian team spent more time in Egypt, and CAF has ordered Zamalek to pay for the additional expenses incurred by the away team.

The Egyptian side sealed the win courtsey of a Bassem Morsy goal, as they sealed progression to the semi-finals.

It is worth mentioning that the Cairo giants have reached the final of the competition after a thrilling 6-5 win on aggregate against Wydad Casablanca.

The Whites are due to face South African outfit Mamelodi Sundowns, with the return leg to be played in Egypt. CAF have set October 23 as the date for the match, and Zamalek have been sent a reminder to propose a venue and kick-off time.

A medical student who loves football. Any free time I have is usually dedicated to football. I support Al Ahly and Real Madrid (Al Ahly comes first of course). Contrary to popular belief, I believe that females enjoy football as much as males do; I am a living proof :D Proud that I am writing for King Fut.
