According to reports from Egypt, Al Ahly coach Hossam El Badry has been handed a one-match ban and fined US $10 000 following his refusal to fulfill his media duties.

CAF has reportedly gave the Red Devils manager a fine after he refused to speak to Qatari broadcaster beIN Sports during the last two rounds of CAF Champions League matches.

In a statement, CAF announced that El Badry had been sanctioned for violating directives and guidelines related to media operations of the ongoing Champions League.

El Badry's move followed three Egyptian clubs who cut ties with Qatar over the kingdom's alleged support for terrorism.

It is reported by the BBC that on the eve of a Champions League match against Morocco's Wydad Casablanca, El Badry objected to the presence of beIN Sports reporters in the press conference and threatened to walk out.

"The coach finally participated in the press conference whilst covering the microphone of BeIN Sports to prevent the sound or pushing it away at other times," said CAF in a statement.“

There were also problems surrounding the home game with Cameroon's Coton Sport on 9 July in Egypt.

"The coach as well as players refused to make an interview with BeIN Sports after the match."

The coach did assist in the press conference at the end of the match but the players were not there.

"Meanwhile, El Badry's ban is suspended on condition that he does not commit a similar offence prior to the end of this year's Champions League, for which beIN Sports holds exclusive broadcasting rights.

The Red Devils are set to meet Tunisian giants, Esperance in September's quarter-finals.
