Warda seeks legal action over ‘false’ harassment allegations

Egypt international revealed on Tuesday that he’ll take legal action against those who have accused him of being involved in harassment incidents.

Portuguese website Record reported earlier this week that Primeira Liga side Feirense might end Warda’s loan after he allegedly harassed two wives of his teammates. This came few days after Warda completed his move to the Portuguese side on a season-long loan deal from Greek side PAOK.

The former Al Ahly player issued a statement on Tuesday, in which he vowed to sue those responsible for these “false statements”.

“In the past days, I had to learn how mean some people can be. I had to learn that some people don’t care about harming others with false statements and allegations as long as it seems to help their interests,” Warda’s statement read.

“I have always been a respected man and rejected any inappropriate behaviour. As such person, I don’t accept people treating other people with other national background disrespectful. Therefore, I have appointed the Zurich based law firm Müller & Paparis to take care of my rights and sue the responsible people by criminal claim.”

The 23-year-old midfielder, however, stressed that he’ll not let this incident affect him, and will continue to focus on helping his team and improving his skills.

“Meanwhile, I will focus on my career and try to do my best everyday to improve my skills in order to help my Club and my National Team.”

Warda was among 15-foreign based players recently called up by Egypt coach Hector Cuper for the Pharaohs two upcoming fixtures against Uganda in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

“Finally, I want to apologise to my fans, friends, and family for being forced to hear such ugly, false allegations. I know they’re having a hard time at the moment being confronted with such circumstances. I want to thank all of them for their support and their certainty about me always being respectful,” he added.
