Egyptian Ismaily Club management fined its players after they had boycotted Sunday’s training session to protest against their delayed financial dues, the club said on Monday.

The coastal club said in a statement that all the players who boycotted the training will be fined 10 percent of the value of their contracts and reported for investigation.

Ismaily condemned the players' behaviour, saying it came at a critical position for the team at the league table and ahead of the important game against Pharco FC on Wednesday.

The Suez Canal side, which is considered one of the country’s prestigious football clubs, has been suffering since the season started, lying at 17th place (one away from the bottom) of the league table with only 15 points from 19 matches after a series of poor results.

The Dervishes won just two games, lost in eight, and held to a draw in the remaining nine games.

Isamily is currently led by an interim board after the resignation of the elected board earlier in January following a series of poor results.

The interim board said in Monday’s statement that they are working hard to provide more stability for the team and to pay all the late financial dues once the current financial crisis is resolved.
