Egyptian top flight side Wadi Degla have placed legendary goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary on their transfer list.

The 44-year-old goalkeeper – who recently became the oldest ever player to appear at the Africa Cup of Nations tournament – has had a falling out with the club’s management after a training altercation.

KingFut reports that El-Hadary, who was initially named in Wadi Degla’s squad to face his former team Al Ahly, slapped teammate and third-choice goalkeeper Khaled Walid.

Coach Ahmed ‘Mido’ Hossam then asked El-Hadary to apologise, but the ‘keeper reportedly refused and was then ejected from the camp and slapped with a heavy fine.

The club have also transfer-listed the player, with Magdy Samy, Chairman of Wadi Degla, posting on Faceook: “Available to transfer to MLS or Scandinavian teams, Veteran goalkeeper, 44 years old, and able to play for 2 more years at top level.”
