CAIRO: Ismaili goalkeeper Essam Al-Hadari is set to be investigated after skipping Sunday s league game with ENPPI.
The Egypt guardian declared himself unavailable for selection until he receives his late wages in full, much to the frustration of the Dervishes’ board.
Ismaili chairman Nasr Aboul-Hassan insists that Al-Hadari has no right in his case as he voiced his discontentment over the 37-year-old s acts.
Al-Hadari will be investigated after skipping the ENPPI match, Aboul-Hassan, who brought Al-Hadari from Sion last summer, told Modern Sport TV.
He shouldn’t be asking for any money and if he forwarded the case to the Football Association, they will do nothing because he has no right.
The amount he is asking for is not stated in his contract, it is an additional fee from advertising written in another contract.
Aboul-Hassan criticized Al-Hadari s indiscipline and continuous willingness to quit the club, despite having no genuine offers from abroad.
Now he wants to be involved in training without playing matches, but this is unacceptable, we are not in a public shop, he added.
Al-Hadari failed to settle in with the club and has always been asking for a move abroad, even though no real offers were received.
He made several claims that he is wanted by other clubs, but it all turned out to be false. The Palmeiras offer was a total fake!
No club in the world would send their bid directly to TV channels and internet websites before contacting the other club.
In response to the Ismaili chief s comments, Al-Hadari has vowed to take legal action as he intends to be back with the team.
I will be back to play games with the team, but my lawyer will claim my rights through legal action, the Egypt number one said.
I hope the Ismaili fans would understand my situation and not get upset because any unpleasant outcome will not be my responsibility.
