Despite being the exclusive broadcaster of the CAF Champions League, Zamalek 's manger Helmi Toulan refused to talk with Al-Jazeera following Wednesday's clash against Ahly.

The 59-year-old attributed his refusal to cooperate with the Qatari channel due to their coverage of the current situation in Egypt.

TV network Al-Jazeera.was accused by many Egyptians of biased coverage towards the Muslim Brotherhood as they aired pro-Morsi demos  and neglecting the anti-Morsi rallies.

After the intervention of CAF officials, Toulan allowed A l-Jazeera to interview  team's forward Mohamed Ibrahim for a few minutes.
