Following Al Ahly’s Egyptian Super Cup loss on Tuesday, club president Mahmoud El Khatib has ordered almost everyone in the club to be fined including the coaches, players and the Director of football.
Pitso Mosimane's team tasted defeat in the Egyptian Super Cup tie with a penalty shootout loss of 3-2 to El-Gaish, who is believed to have secured their first-ever Super Cup title on Tuesday night.
In response to the loss, a statement read, "Mahmoud El Khatib, Al Ahly's president, decided to impose a EGP 300 000 (R281 529) fine on Al Ahly players, director of football and the coaching staff after the disappointing performance in the Egyptian Super Cup on Tuesday, despite the great support that the team receives to achieve titles and meet the expectations of the fans.”
“Also, the administrative staff and the medical staff will be subjected to a fine that is relative to their salaries.”
Mosimane's side went into the clash as heavy favourites, but could not deliver on expectations which has now lead to the entire playing and coaching staff being punished.
