Egyptian international and FC Basel right-back Omar Gaber has refused to accept a late payment due to him from former club Zamalek.
The 24-year-old, who started his career with the White Knights as a youth and appeared for the first team from 2010 onwards, was transferred to Swiss side Basel in mid-2016.
According to KingFut, he was owed a sum of 700,000 Egyptian pounds in late payments by Zamalek, but has waived his right to the money.
Gaber sent a letter to the Cairo giants, explaining that he is refusing the payment as a gesture of love and appreciation to the club.
“This is the least I could give Zamalek and the fans,” he wrote.
