Ahly's youngster Ramadan Sobhi repeated his showboating during the Egyptian Super Cup on Thursday.

The 18-year-old stood on the ball, repeating a scene that he made during his sides 2-0 win over Zamalek in a league game, in an attempted feint that was deemed provocative by Zamalek players.

The move prompted Zamalek's players to react and the game was suspended for around 10 minutes due to clashes that occurred on the pitch between the two teams.

Ahly's interim coach Abdel-Aziz 'Zizo' Abdel-Shafy confirmed the player will be sanctioned for his behavior.

"Sobhi will be fined for his behavior during the game," the Ahly coach said in the post-match news conference.

On the other hand, Zamalek's coach Jesualdo Ferriera said that Sobhi is still so young and his behavior will be better in the future after gaining more experience.

"Sobhi is still young and he needs time to gain more experience," Ferriera said in the post-match news conference.
