CAIRO: Goalkeeper Mohamed Abdul-Monsef said that his relationship with Zamalek has reached a dead end after he was accused of being responsible for the club s Arab Champions League (ACL) elimination.

Zamalek fans booed the 30-year-old after he let in two easy goals at home against Jordan s Faisali in the ACL semi-final second leg.

I m disgusted by the fans attitude; I have been made a scapegoat. I will comfort all these people and leave the club, Abdul-Monsef told FilGoal.com Thursday.

Did the players who played against Faisali deserve to win the match? Of course not, all the lines were very poor, it wasn t my fault.

I will not renew my contract; it is also difficult for me to continue playing in the Egyptian League s remaining games.

The former Dina Farms guardian was never a popular figure among Zamalek s fans, especially after conceding six goals against arch-rivals Al-Ahli in the infamous derby clash in 2002.

Any keeper wouldn’t have blocked these goals but unfortunately the fans couldn t forget that day.

Abdul-Monsef is wondering why he is being labeled responsible for Zamalek s dismal form as the team has suffered even when he has been on the bench.

Zamalek lost hopes of winning the league title and I wasn t playing, they also crashed out of the CAF Champions League, which I did not take part in, and conceded twice at home to Sudan s Hilal.

Abdul-Monsef is Zamalek s only choice between the sticks after first-choice keeper Abdul-Wahed Al-Sayed sustained a serious injury that ruled him out until the end of the season.
