Portuguese website Record.pt recently suggested that Warda may be kicked off his newly joined Portuguese club for allegedly sexually harassing two of his teammates’ wives.
The 23-year-old player, who moved last week to Clube Desportivo Feirense from Greek side PAOK for one season on loan, has strongly denied the allegations.
“Meanwhile, I will focus on my career and do my best everyday to improve my skills to help my club and my national team,” the player said in a statement.
Warda came through the youth ranks of Cairo giants Ahly before moving to Alexandria-based Ittihad on a season-long loan in 2014.
He then joined Panetolikos in the summer of 2015 on a free transfer and was called up by Egypt coach Hector Cuper for the African Cup of Nations in Gabon, where the Pharaohs lost the final to Cameroon 2-1.
