CAIRO: Sherif Ekrami is yet to make his debut with Ankaragucu due to his insistence to fast on match day against the will of the Turkish club s manager.
According to Ekrami s father, Ankaragucu coach Hakan Kutlu failed to convince the 25-year-old goalkeeper to cut fasting the month of Ramadan ahead of the team s league game with Gazientepspor.
The manager ordered Sherif not to fast if he wants to play on Sunday, but Sherif insisted on fasting, Ekrami the father told FilGoal.com.
Apart from the fasting problem, Ekrami revealed that his son is yet to receive his signing on fees from the Turkish Super Lig side.
