Coach Shehata hasn't asked for a punishment for Shikabala, says Zamalek
Zamalek coach Hassan Shehata didn't ask the club management for a definite punishment for star Mahmoud "Shikabala" Abdel-Razek, White Castle clarified late on Friday.
Zamalek management enforced a temporary ban on the talented forward, Shikabala, due to a pitch-side fight with coach Shehata after he was sidelined in the Maghreb Fez game Sunday.
Television cameras caught the 26-year-old telling his boss: "I’m fed up with you; if you don’t want me then let me go."
Shikhabala's punishment was compounded when he was also barred from playing in Egypt's London Olympic team as a result of his outburst against Shehata.
It was reported on Friday that the veteran coach asked the Zamalek board to offload Shikabala, which the Cairo giants denied.
"Shehata has recorded all the details of the conflict in the match report. The coach didn't ask for any specific punishment; the whole matter is up to the management now," the club explained on its official website.
The Cairo giants didn’t comment on whether the player will stay or leave the club in the new season, especially amid recent rumours that he is seeking a move to Saudi side Al-Shabab.

The convenient marriage between Iran and the Arab left would have been unthinkable only a few years ago, given the traditional ideological paradoxes between patriarchal Persian Shiism, on the one hand, and leftist orthodoxy on the other.Indeed, a casual viewer of Hizbullah's Al-Manar television, or the Iranian-funded Al-Mayadin TV, these days would probably think that the two Shia propaganda
