Zamalek Forfeit against Al Ahly in the Egyptian League Derby

Referee Gediminas Mazeika called off Monday’s Cairo’s derby match between Al Ahly and Zamalek after the #fff Knights failed to show up for the game on time.

The referee waited for 20 minutes on the pitch before abandoning the match.

Al Ahly was recognized as the winner.

The EFA had postponed the match for 60 minutes after the Whites’bus failed to arrive in the stadium.

The Whites’youth coach Ahmed Abdel-Maqsoud had confirmed that he was heading to the stadium with a youthful team but the bus is stuck in traffic.

Earlier,Zamalek head coach Patrice Carteron asserted earlier that his club would not play the Egyptian League derby against Al Ahly till now.

On Sunday,Zamalek board of directors,chaired by Mortada Mansour decided not to resume the ongoing Egyptian Premier League season.

This decision came in response to the recent penalties imposed by the disciplinary committee of the EFA on a number of Al-Ahly and Zamalek players,due to the clashes,which broke out after the Super Cup match.

Zamalek Chairman Mortada Mansour comment on the NO SHOW

It is worth mentioning Zamalek managed to lift their fourth Super Cup title after defeating Al Ahly 4-3 on penalties.
