Egyptian champions Zamalek have announced that they have suspended playmaker Mohamed Ibrahim after his behavior towards the team’s technical staff after rejecting his sidelining from the Haras El-Hodoud game on Tuesday.

"Ibrahim apologised later but his suspension is final to maintain discipline in the team," the Cairo giants' Football Director Abdel-Halim Ali told the club's official website early on Wednesday.

Zamalek kept their slim hopes of defending their Egyptian Premier League title alive with a 1-0 home win over second-from-bottom El-Hodoud thanks to a brilliant acrobatic goal from out-of-form striker Bassem Morsi.

The second-placed side are still a massive 11 points behind leaders and archrivals Ahly, who came from a goal down to defeat Smouha 3-1 in Alexandria earlier in the day, with 10 matches remaining.

Under the helms of Scottish manager Alex McLeish, the Whites have trained Wednesday amid preparations for the Egypt Cup round of 16 clash against Ittihad El-Shorta Friday in Ismailia stadium.
