CAIRO: Zamalek full-back Omar Rabie Yassin submitted a request to annul his contract with the Cairo club following months of sitting on the bench.
Yassin, who was landed at Michel Decastel s side in January, hasn t made his Zamalek debut thus far, which prompted him to consider leaving the troubled outfit.
I was constantly shunned over the past weeks, so I asked assistant coach Mahmoud Saad about the reason why I haven t been named for a single match until now, the former SK Lierse man told FilGoal.com.
Zamalek are having the left-back position unfilled, nevertheless, Swiss boss Decastel didn t pick Yassin, who can play as a left winger, for any of Zamalek s league reverse fixtures.
Decastel usually opts to field either Sabri Rahil or Alaa Ali instead.
Yassin believes he has absolutely no chance of establishing himself with Zamalek.
Saad told me that I was only signed out of sheer stubbornness, and these words made me more determined to leave, the 21-year-old explained.
I don t think Zamalek would mind letting me go. I penned a five-year contract for LE 620,000 per season, and so far I haven t got a cent.
In the past January transfer window, Petrojet made serious overtures towards Yassin, but he eventually joined Zamalek.
