Regarding this, the Zamalek advisor explained: “The Football Association committed a disaster because it relied on regulations and overlooked other regulations.”
He continued: “According to Article 45, the team is considered withdrawn in three cases, and Zamalek is considered identical to it in the second case, but the Football Association imposed the penalty on the club without explaining the reasons for the withdrawal to appear for investigation.”
He ended: “Mortada Mansour in closed rooms is considered a man of law and a state because he overlooks many void decisions. My message to the Football Association is not to settle accounts and we will respond with documents on the punishment.”
It is worth noting that the Egyptian Football Association issued a decision after the Al-Ahly match, considering Zamalek defeated in the match, with the removal of three points from the team’s balance after the end of the current season (2019-2020).
