Zamalek Players Fined NGN2m For Not Winning


Players at Egyptian club, Zamalek, have reportedly been fined NGN2m (100,000 EGP) for draw result against Petrojet in the league, on Tuesday.

Zamalek was playing in season opening game away to Petrojet.

The Cairo based club could not put the ball past the opposition goalkeeper with more than ten scoring chances.

Club chairman, Mortada Mansour, was not pleased with the result. He, therefore, fined each player for failure to win.

Zamalek Chairman, Mortada Mansour, fined the club’s players NGN2m for a draw against Petrojet in an Egyptian league game.

“The fine isn’t because of the performance, it was good today and we had more than 10 chances to score,” Mansour told ‘Sports and Youth’ Radio Channel after the game.

“The fine was imposed due to the easy chances that were missed,” he added.

Mansour, 66-year-old and a lawyer, however, praised the team’s Swiss coach, Christian Gross and expressed optimism that the club will improve and perform better in their next game against Ittihad Alexandria on Saturday.

“In his first official game with the club, Christian Gross has given Zamalek a good shape in the field which helped the players create chances, but they couldn’t take advantage of,” he said.

“Everything will improve by time, I consider this game as a friendly,” Mansour added.
