ISMAILIA: Ismaili manager Patrice Neveu insisted that the new players must come and live in Ismailia starting from next season.
The new players must live here if they want to be a part of our team. Traveling will affect their performance in trainings and games, said the French tactician.
Neveu also confirmed that all the players must accept the coach tactics and demands would they be on the pitch or on the bench.
A crisis blew up two weeks ago when forward Omar Gamal refused to play a defensive role against Ittihad of Alexandria and was consequently suspended by the technical staff and the board but has been recalled to play against Al Ahly.
The former Guinea boss also revealed that the squad needs to be strengthened and that the board is in negotiations with some players to fulfill his demands.
Neveu was hired by Ismaili last February and led the team in 19 matches.
