Mortada Mansour, Zamalek SC board suspended on allegations of financial misconduct

Zamalek SC chairman Mortada Mansour and the rest of the board have been temporarily suspended by the Sports Ministry on allegations that the club had committed “financial violations,” the ministry said in a statement yesterday. The ministry said it has referred evidence of misconduct to the prosecutor’s office and will wait for the investigation to finish before taking a final decision on whether to restore the board. The statement did not provide details on the ministry’s allegations. The Directorate of Youth and Sports in Giza will manage the club in the interim and has set up a temporary governing committee.
