EFA announce decision on Zamalek no-show against Maqassa
The Egyptian Football Association Competitions Committee announced on Tuesday their decision regarding Zamalek’s failure to show up for their game against Misr El-Maqassa.
A recent dispute between Zamalek and EFA started after the White Knights chairman Mortada Mansour refused to go to Petrosport Stadium to play the postponed game against Maqassa in the 22nd round of the Egyptian Premier League.
The match was supposed to be played on April 15, but the EFA changed the date of the fixture over security reasons, as the match collided with the Coptic Christians Easter holiday celebration.
EFA revealed on their official Facebook page that the competitions committee ruled that Zamalek were defeated 2-0 against Maqassa after failing to appear for the game. Three points will also be deducted from the White Knights in addition to an EGP 200,000 fine.
Mansour, however, claimed that the game against Maqassa will be replayed. He also said that Zamalek match against Tala’a El-Gaish will be played as scheduled on Wednesday.
In other league matches, the EFA fined Dakhleya EGP 5,000 as the team’s technical staff and substitutes entered the pitch after a goal was scored. Entag El-Harby were also fined EGP 2,000 for leaving the technical area.
Arab contractors received a similar fine for the same reason while their player Karim El-Deeb was individually fined EGP 1,000 for not committing to his team’s attire.
