Swiss outfit FC Luzernhave terminated the contract of their Egyptian midfielder forward Mahmoud 'Kahraba' Abdel-Moneim due to his conduct with the team's manager, the club announced on Friday.

"FC Luzern announced the suspension of Kahraba from all games and trainings with immediate effect," read a statement on the club's official website on Friday.

"The contract with the 19-year old will also be cancelled," the statement added.

"This suspension is a disciplinary action due to several incidents of inappropriate behaviour against the manager Carlos Bernegger, other players and senior officials within the club," the club announced.

"A continued cooperation with the player is ruled out by Carlos Bernegger due to the accumulation of incidents. The board of directors of FC Luzern fully supports the decision taken by the sporting staff," the statement concluded.

The 19-year-old forward Kahraba had an impressive performance with the Swiss side since joining them last summer, scoring seven goals with the team this season.

Kahraba, who has outstanding attack skills, moved from Egyptian side ENPPI, that last won the Egypt Cup in 2011.

Abdel-Moneim's nickname 'Kahraba' can be translated to 'Electricity,' an expression of his lively performance.

Luzern are fifth in the Swiss league table this season with 39 points, ten behind leaders Basel.

Real story
Reports are the club became angry when he decided against renewing his contract and decided to try and tarnish the player's reputation while decreasing his minutes? Does it make sense that their leading scorer was not starting this late in the season? Inappropriate behavior is benching your leading scorer in an attempt to force him into an extension. Kahraba earned playing time. I hope he becomes a superstar

Reports from where??? Sounds like another footballer thinking because he is good thinks he is god... however, he found out the hard way that he is not. If the facts are not true they couldn't just terminate his contract for no reason... it is europe.. not egypt!
