Zamalek's international striker Bassem Morsi has been fined LE 350,000 by the club's board after posting another photo on his personal Instagram account.

The club decided to ban players from using their social media accounts, a move that was violated by the international striker for the second time.

The 24-year-old has been suspended from training by the club's board until the conclusion of investigations, as the team prepare for the league resumption at Haras El-Hodoud on 17 December.

Having two matches on their hands, Egyptian league holders Zamalek are currently fifth on the table with 10 points, three behind leaders Dakhleya who have played one more game.
