Egypt and African giants Al Ahly and Zamalek are quiet in the wake of recent hefty fines slapped on them by the Egyptian FA.
The two teams were locked in a Super Cup final last Friday in which Al Ahly ended up winning 3-2, with a brace from Nigeria’s Oluwafemi Junior Ajayi and Hussein El Shahat reducing Zamalek’s two penalty goals by Mahmoud Alaa Eldin to consolations.
The tie was marred by abusive chants and lit up smoke flares. The fines total 680,000 Egyptian pounds.
However, both clubs appear unwary of the fines imposed by the FA, with even the usually controversial Zamalek chairman Mansour Mortada mute about the decisions.
Both were in league action on Monday night with Al Ahly picking its first points of the season against Smouha via Ramadan Sohbi’s goal nabbed in after ten minutes.
Zamalek also humbled Ittihad Alexandria courtesy of Mostafa Mohammed’s sixth-minute effort.
