Egypt international said he has no intention of leaving Zamalek and confirmed he will be staying at the White Castle.

Zamalek chairman Mortada Mansour has announced that both Tarek Hamed and Ali Gabr will move to newly renovated club in a deal that could cost $5 million.

However, Hamed has revealed via his official Instagram account that he hasn’t signed any transfer documents, confirming his stay at Zamalek.

“I am staying at Zamalek and I have not signed any transfer documents,” the 29-year-old posted.

On the other side, Mansour has revealed current disputes with the player saying, “Tarek Hamed refuses to attend the training sessions. We didn’t do anything to him!

“It was me who brought him from Smouha to Zamalek.

“Some agents put ideas into players’ heads, initiating talks with other clubs to sell them, with their contracts at their current clubs still running,” Mortada Mansour added.

Tarek Hamed has joined Zamalek in 2014 from Smouha, making over 130 appearances for them and scoring three goals.

He helped them win the league title in 2015, three Egypt Cup titles, and the 2016 Egypt Super Cup. He was also part of the squad that reached the 2016 CAF Champions League final.

    I just don’t get it. Egypt and Zamalek, in particular, is a place where things work upside down. A club’s president comes out just before a WC cup game and declares both his players are sold while both of them never received a warning or were informed of anything. A couple of weeks later, the same president comes out to say they fled the team. Are they sold or do you want them? If you want them, then why did you come out two weeks earlier to say you sold them even tho the players never asked for a transfer and were not informed that they were on the market? If they are not sold, then why did you come out and say they were and in that case, how is the player supposed to just come back to work as if nothing happened? More importantly, how does this whole arch of a story end up with the players being the ones considered to be wrong?

    How do you confirm the selling of two players who didn’t even agree on terms or even speak with the club that is buying? How are they the ones that are to blame for all that?

      My friend you wrote down exactly the same things I thought about. In Egypt and only in Egypt there is nothing right. Everything goes upside down. Nothing works normally
