Zamalek ‘withdraw’ from league in ref protest

21 December 2015, 15:47

Cairo - Cairo giants Zamalek announced they would withdraw from the Egyptian league in protest at the refereeing of their 3-2 defeat to Tala'ea El-Gaish.

The reigning champions' board said in a statement after Sunday's match that it objected to the referee's "wrong" decisions to send off defender Ali Gabr, and award Tala'ea a penalty.

The statement said the club had objected against the choice of the referee, Mahmoud al-Banna, prior to the match.

"It appears there was an objective to appointing Banna to referee the match, to hinder Zamalek's march," the statement said.

Tala'ea scored two penalties after six and 56 minutes.

The first penalty came after the referee ruled that Gabr had tripped an attacker.

Banna awarded Tala'ea another penalty when Hazem Imam blocked Alaa Ali in the penalty box.

Zamalek's next scheduled match is on Wednesday, against Ghazl El Mahalla.
