It doesn't rain, but it pours for Egyptian Premier League side Zamalek, as they are ordered by FIFA to pay $450 000 to a former player Junior Agogo.

Media reports from the country reval that the White Knights have received a letter from FIFA ordering them to pay the remaining unpaid wages of their former player.

The ex-Ghanaian International joined Zamalek from English club Nottingham Forest in the summer of 2008 on a three-year deal when the club was chaired by Mamdouh Abbas.


However, nine months after completing his switch, the Ghanaian striker parted ways with the side due to unpaid dues which forced him to file a complaint against Zamalek.

The report indicates that Zamalek confirmed receiving the letter from FIFA ordering them to pay $450 000, the amount of Agogo’s remaining wages.

Although Zamalek president Mortada Mansour previously said that he paid 250 000 Dollars of Agogo’s dues, yet he blamed Abbas for being responsible for the transfer.

This becomes the second order for the club fork out money as the Egyptian Football Association fined the club 200 000 EGP earlier this week.

The 2016 CAF Champions League finalists failed to honour their Egyptian Premier League fixture against Misr El-Maqassa and were docked three points last weekend.
