EFA reduce suspensions of El-Shennawy, Mahmoud Wadi

- Yasmine El Tohamy - The EFA have reduced the suspensions of both Al Ahly’s Mohamed El-Shennawy and Mahmoud Wadi of Pyramids FC.

Mohamed El-Shennawy was handed a four-game suspension after he was seen having a heated argument with the referee following Al Ahly’s draw with Bank Al Ahly.

The Reds had a goal controversially ruled out by VAR for an alleged foul in the build-up to the goal, and the incident caused an uproar among the technical staff, players, and fans as it denied them the victory and the three points.

One of the players who objected to the decision was team skipper Mohamed El-Shennawy who as a result was banned for four games as well as being fined an EGP 20,000.

On Wednesday, the EFA’s disciplinary committee revealed their surprise about the suspension, saying that it wasn’t their decision, before the EFA decided to reduce the ban to only one game, however, they increased the fine to EGP 50,000.

El-Shennawy was set to miss crucial Egyptian Premier League games against Arab Contractors, Pyramids FC, Smouha, and Tala’a El-Gaish, but now he will be absent for the first game only.

Meanwhile, Pyramids FC have had their share of great news as well after the EFA have also decided to reduce the suspension of their striker Mahmoud Wadi.

The Palestinian international was handed a fine of EGP 100,000 as well as an eight-game suspension after allegedly insulting the referee during Pyramids FC’s victory over Entag El-Harby.

Pyramids FC’s appeal was a success as Wadi will now miss only four games, however, he will see his fine getting increased to EGP 200,000 instead.

On another note, the EFA have announced that Tala’a El-Gaish will not be sanctioned for fielding Mohamed Nassef against Wadi Degla.

Before their game against Wadi Degla, Nassef had received three yellow cards against El-Gouna, Misr El-Makkasa, and Cairo giants Zamalek.

The Egyptian Football Association’s (EFA) rules state that players should be handed a one-game suspension if they receive three yellow cards.

However, the army side responded by saying that the third yellow card was not counted because he had already been given a one-game suspension on matchday 4, which was confirmed as true by the EFA.
