Second Global Ban for Zamalek’s Controversial Mortada in Six Days

Controversial Zamalek club chairman Mansour Mortada receives a second ban in six days

The week hasn’t been Mansour Mortada’s best after incurring two bans from international sporting organizations in a span of six days.

First, he was slapped with a 12-month suspension from all football-related activities after spewing uncomplimentary remarks on the Confederation of African Football’s president and Secretary General including threatening to rent away the continental football governing body’s Cairo headquarters.

Six days on, the lawyer-cum politician has incurred the ire of yet another international sporting entity prompting his indefinite ban.

Mansour attacked the president of the International Handball Federation (IHF) Hassan Mostafa, provoking a ban from the IHF who also urged the Zamalek handball club to distance itself from the embattled club chairman.

This is the third ban slapped on the 66-year-old following the Egyptian Supreme Council’s nationwide media ban on him recently.

Mansour is arguably the most controversial football chairman in Africa’s north.

Described as commanding and high-handed, the businessman has had a series of run-ins with different players in the time he’d spent being Egyptian Premier League outfit Zamalek Sporting Club’s chairman.
