Zamalek striker Bassem Morsi has been suspended by the club's board pending investigations after posting another photo on his personal Instagram account.

The board has already banned players from using their social media accounts, a directive that was allegedly breached by Egypt’s striker for the second time.

As a result, Morsi will be suspended from training by the board pending investigations, as the team prepare for the league resumption at Haras El-Hodoud on 17 December.

Egyptian league holders Zamalek are currently fifth of the table with 10 points, three adrift of leaders Dakhleya.
