Zamalek chairman blames magic and sorcery for Sundowns loss

Mortada Mansour

Zamalek president Mortada Mansour has put the blame on magic for the team’s defeat against Mamelodi Sundowns in the first leg of the CAF Champions League final.

Zamalek fell short against the South African side in a 0-3 away defeat, what made their mission in the return leg complicated as they need to overcome the three goals advantage The Brazilians have.

“I want to tell everybody to not make fun of our claims that there was something suspicious in Islam Gamal’s own goal [for Sundowns],” Mansour said in a press conference.

“It is abnormal that Islam Gamal scores an own goal in the same way Ali Gabr scored with before with the same foot and in the same net. It is not necessary that it is Sundowns who have used magic, look for the former Zamalek players who were expelled from the club. I am speaking about someone who knows himself well,” he added.

Zamalek are set to face Sundowns in the return leg on Sunday, October 23 at Borg El-Arab stadium hoping to pull off a big victory to recover their first leg upset.

    He’s an asshole. He says the same thing over and over. That’s what he said about wydad lose too. A lot of players score own goal that’s not a problem. The problem is fix your shitty team not fix shitty blames

    Why is Zamalek not giving Sundowns a field to practice as is the rule. What happened to Sportmanship. I am sure its that stupid old man.
