CAIRO: Zamalek coach Henri Michel said he doesn t care about the ongoing saga between Zamalek board of directors and the club s midfielder Moetazbellah Mohamed Eno .
The Cairo giants are purportedly enraged at Eno after he missed several training sessions and failed to take part in Zamalek s 4-1 victory over Vital O of Burundi in the African Champions League preliminary round.
Eno must be punished because he missed training on purpose and without permission but his other problems with the club s board don t concern me, Michel told a press conference on Friday.
These problems are administrative matters. Having the player on the team s disposal is my only concern.
Michel refused to allow Eno, whose deal runs out at the end of the season, to take part in the training sessions on Wednesday.
The 23-year-old s absence reinforced reports claiming that he has already signed for Ahli and that he will join the Zamalek s arch-rivals in the summer.
If the international holding midfielder featured for Zamalek in the Champions League, he won t be eligible to play for Ahly in the same tournament this season.
Meanwhile, Michel said it is too early to talk about his future as rumors circulate over whether the former Ivory Coast tactician will continue beyond this season or not.
The 59-year-old coach signed a six-year contract with Zamalek in January, succeeding Portuguese manager Manuel Cajuda.
