Zurich, Switzerland, Nov. 13, 2017 (TNE) FIFA has given Egyptian club, Zamalek, three months to pay ex-Ghana striker Junior Agogo his wages of US$ 450,000.
According to the FIFA media channel, Agogo joined Zamalek from English side Nottingham Forest in the summer of 2008, but terminated his contract just nine months due to unpaid dues.
The former Black Stars international featured on 11 occasions, scoring just three goals for the Egyptian team and took the club to FIFA to settle the matter.
Earlier this year, and after the striker filed a complaint against the Whites, Agogo received a letter from FIFA ordering Zamalek to pay him his remaining wages of US$ 450,000.
Reports say that the club’s board decided to invite the player or his agent to come to Cairo to resolve the issue, assuring that a bank account will be made for the Ghanaian to deposit his late dues.
Moreover, the board also pointed out that the three-month period starts after the club officially receives FIFA’s decision.
Should the Cairo giants fail to pay their former player, disciplinary actions by FIFA will be taken against them.
Recently, players won the right to break bad contracts under a new deal between FIFA and Players’ Union (FIFPro).
FIFA said players can leave their clubs who delay paying salaries or mistreat them, under the new rules announced on Monday.
