CAIRO: Zamalek interim boss Ahmed Refaat blasted outcast defender Wissem El-Abdi for his indiscipline, but denied that the Tunisian is set to leave the club.
Refaat denied Tunisian reports suggesting that El-Abdi has agreed on a contract with Esperance, despite conceding that the center-half has become out of favor in the Cairo club.
Abdi is an irresponsible player; he has no place in the team at the moment because he needs to be disciplined, Refaat told FilGoal.com.
But he is under a contract with Zamalek and he has no right to sign with any other team unless the club gives him permission.
On the other hand, Refaat revealed that the White Knights are yet to decide on the future of veteran striker Abdel-Halim Ali, who received an offer from Gaish.
Meanwhile, Zamalek are set to regain the services of influential duo Junior Agogo and Gamal Hamza for the upcoming league game against Police Union on Saturday.
The duo took part in the team s training session on Monday as Zamalek s official site stated that they are poised to lead the frontline at the weekend.
Ghana striker Agogo completed a three-match suspension by the Egyptian Football Association, while Hamza was disciplined by the club in recent weeks.
The absence of Agogo and Hamza had an obvious impact on Zamalek, who failed to score during the past five games.
