Zamalek president Mortada Mansour has announced the suspension of Bassem Morsy and demotion to training with club youngsters.

Mansour said that the player was demoted to train with the youth team till the end of the season because of his attitude and actions regarding extending his contract even though an agreement was already made between both sides. The 25-year-old player did not show up to the first team training session on Tuesday.

“Bassem Morsy told Ismail Youssef that he will only renew his contract by the end of the season. This is not the way it goes in Zamalek and no player will play around with Zamalek and the fans like that,” Mansour said to ON Sport TV channel.

Recently, the club announced that an agreement was reached with Morsy on extending his contract before the end of the season as his contract expires, however, the striker decided not to sign a new contract till the season ends which was not accepted by Mansour.

“Morsy has been fooling the club for more than a month, we won’t let him continue doing that. This was the case with Momen Zakaria and it won’t happen again,” he concluded.

In addition to being a hardcore football fan, Abdelrahman is a communications enthusiast who works in marketing, advertising, content creation and PR.
