Zamalek manager Ahmed Hossam 'Mido' announced on Wednesday that he would boycott talking to the media until the end of the current season.

Mido, the focus of a series of recent disputes, has featured on daily local sports television programmes.

They are currently third in Group B with 31 points from 18 matches, three behind leaders Petrojet, who've played 19 games, and two behind runner-ups Ittihad El-Shorta, who've played 18.
