Zaki was red carded for using swear words, says referee.
The former Wigan Athletic star received a straight red card in the dying minutes after a brief verbal exchange with the linesman.
It seemed that Zaki insulted the linesman who in return complained to the referee, and the latter didn't hesitate to send off the 26-year-old.
"Zaki received his marching orders for using swear words while arguing with the linesman," Abdel-Raouf told Al-Hayat TV.
On the lengthy discussion he had with the robust marksman after dismissing him, Abdel-Raouf said, "He was saying that he didn't deserve a red card."
Zaki, who's yet to notch his competitive goal this season, is going to miss the White Knights' upcoming league game with Military Production through automatic suspension.
