The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) has fined El Zamalek SC’s president Mortada Mansour for misconduct following their game against Smouha.

Zamalek who are currently fourth in the Egyptian Premier League table played out a goalless draw against Smouha on Friday.

Following the game, the EFA imposed a hefty EGP 100,000 fine on Mortada Mansour for his offensive comments towards the referee and the EFA’s head of refereeing committee.

The 67-year-old was also handed a three-game ban from any activity related to football by the EFA’s disciplinary committee.

The Zamalek boss has a reputation for being strict and making controversial/insolent comments. Earlier in October, he frowned against his players having any sort of social media presence.

“None of you are allowed to have a Facebook page. Pick between Zamalek and your Facebook & Instagram page. Whoever opens a social media page I will fine him half his salary, and every time you post you will be fined.”

Also, he was reported to have insulted FIFA’s Secretary General Fatma Samoura sent to handle the affairs of Confederation of African Football (CAF).  

Meanwhile, Smouha president Farag Amer was also fined EGP 50,000 as he insulted the match officials while receiving a one-game ban in the process.
