Zamalek in-form winger Mahmoud "Kahraba" Abdel-Moneim has been fined for his 2 weeks absence without proper notice, the club's president announced Monday.

The Whites' president posted a video on the club's official website showing Kahraba's contract, which lasts for three years, and has confirmed he will be sanctioning the player due to his disapperance from the team's training.

Zamalek president warned the player from signing for any other team without permission, as there are rumors linking the winger to a potential move to the Zamalek's arch-rival Ahly.

"Kahraba's contract still has 3 years with Zamalek, the contract is notarized and everything is certified," Zamalek president said.

"What you're doing will never shake Zamalek, you are a player in Zamalek and you'll stay for three more years," he added.
