Former Al Ahly striker Souleymane Coulibaly has hit back at Portuguese coach Augusto Inacio after he was sacked as Zamalek manager.

The White Castle terminated the contract of Inacio last week after days of tension involving a row with club chairman Mortada Mansour. He left Zamalek only four months after his appointment.

The former Zamalek manager previously slammed Coulibaly’s allegations of being “treated like a slave” at the Red Castle. The Ivorian striker had fled to London in May before issuing a statement alleging that he was “forced to bow and pray every time he scored” and that his family didn’t feel comfortable practicing Christianity in Egypt.

Inacio said then that Coulibaly should be ashamed of his actions and that these religious discrimination excuses are used by some people if they want to escape from their workplace.

“If he really wanted to leave politely, he could’ve easily spoken to the club’s chairman and wouldn’t have given any kind of excuses,” Inacio said in June following Coulibaly’s statement.

“This player [Coulibaly] should be ashamed of his actions. If any player wanted to depart his club for whatever reasons, he should’ve at least have the guts to speak out to his manager or executive,” he added.

Following Inacio’s departure, Coulibaly appeared to be mocking the Portuguese manager on Twitter. He tweeted: “After judging me about my escape he got sacked by Zamalek and he’s escaping now like me.”

The Ivorian forward’s dispute with the Red Castle is yet to be resolved as Al Ahly chairman Mahmoud Taher revealed early in July that FIFA are yet to send the club any updates regarding Coulibaly’s case.
