Egypt goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary has confirmed that his relationship with Zamalek is over and that he has no intention of changing his mind.

“I’m done with Zamalek," he said. "The rift with Hossam and Ibrahim Hassan is still standing and there is no going back”, he told a TV program Wednesday.

El-Hadary clashed with keepers’ coach Emad El-Mandouh and reportedly offended the club and its officials.

Coach Hossam Hassan and his twin brother Ibrahim, the football director, investigated the matter, resulting in a sanction on him. 

“All the reports saying that we had reconciliation are false" he said. " We reached a dead end.” 

The former Ahly and Ismaily goalie and reigning best African keeper confirmed that his current priority is looking for a new club to join as of January. "I want to be ready for the rest of the African Cup of Nations (ACN) 2012 qualifiers," he said.

The 37-year old player is now serving a four-month national and international suspension by International Football Federation (FIFA) for walking out on his club, Ahly, midseason to join Swiss side FC Sion in 2008. He is set to resume action in mid-February 2011.
