Egyptian Premier League side Pyramids FC have reportedly fined their veteran goalkeeper Sherif Ekramy for having congratulated his former club Al Ahly on their CAF Champions League triumph.
Ekramy, 38 joined the 2020 CAF Confederation Cup runners-up in August last year as Al Ahly terminated his contract.
According to KingFut who are citing Egyptian TTV presenter Ibrahim Fayek, Sherif Ekramy has been slammed with a EGP 100K fine for sending congratulatory messages to his childhood club.
The former Feyenoord stickman quickly congratulated his former club following the final whistle of the CAF Champions League final on Saturday ad they trashed Kaizer Chiefs 3-0 in Casablanca, Morocco.
“Congratulations to Al Ahly Club and its great fans on the 10th African Championship, it’s a great achievement for a respectable generation of players who imposed themselves. They proved to be a continuation of previous generations who wrote a great history. Al Ahly will always be a major reason for the happiness of millions. Congratulation to the African champions”, Sherif Ekramy wrote on his Twitter account.
In addition, arch-rivals Zamalek SC have also congratulated Al Ahly for their 10th continental trophy, and further withdrawn that fair-play message on their social media accounts.
