CAIRO: Hassan Shehata could be involved in a dispute with the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) after the coach voiced his objection to bonuses set for players following the Pan Arab Games triumph.
The Pharaohs found no difficulty in finishing on top of the five-team tournament to claim the gold medal.
The EFA is due to hand each player LE 50,000 while every member of the technical staff will be given LE 100,000 as a reward for the win.
However, former Arab Contractors coach Shehata demands double that figure, according to an EFA official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Shehata doesn t enjoy the best of relationships with the EFA.
He opposed their decision to compress the league matches in December in order to give Egypt proper time to prepare for the African Cup of Nations.
Shehata was concerned the players would get exhausted.
Furthermore, the federation is yet to consider the 58-year-old s request to lift the ban imposed on Mahmoud “Shikabala Abdel Razeq.
