Ahly coach Hossam El-Badry has been hit with a two-game suspension and a 5,000 EGP fine for his "unacceptable way of objecting" to a referee at Sunday's El-Entag El-Harby game.

The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) competition committee announced its decision on Tuesday in response to the behaviour of  some Ahly and El-Entag El-Harby team members during the league game.

El-Badry who was sent off the pitch for looking referee Mahmoud Ashour up and down, a gesture Ashour deemed offensive.

The EFA has also disciplined El-Entag's assistant coach Mohamed Abdullah with an EGP 1,000 fine and a one-game suspension for "arguing with the referee and wasting the game's time."

Mowad and El-Badry earlier apologised for their bad tempers during the game.
