The confederation of African Football (CAF) has announced the rejection of the appeal filed by Zamalek’s president Mortada Mansour against its decision to ban him for a year.
Mansour was handed a one-year ban from engaging in any kind of football related activities and was fined a sum of $40,000 over abusive statements he made against CAF officials last September.
The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) received a letter from the CAF revealing that Mansour’s appeal was not even discussed since the Zamalek president failed to pay a required fee of $3,000 on time.
The CAF also advised that Zamalek’s only way to appeal against the decision, at this point, is through the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
Egypt’s Zamalek will be playing in the upcoming CAF Confederation Cup scheduled to start this month.
