Zamalek to receive compensation from FC Basel’s Serey Die
To better understand this case, let’s flashback to 2008. After winning the Arab Champions League with Algerian side ES Setif, Serey Die was heading towards a peak in his career and caught the eye of Cairo giants Zamalek.
Die signed a five-year contract with Zamalek in 2008 and received a sign-on fee of $25,000. The Ivory Coast international then fled to Switzerland without the knowledge of the Whites to join Swiss side Sion.
Now forwarding to June 2013, FIFA respond to Zamalek’s plea by banning Die from action for 4 months, while Zamalek launched another plea seeking compensation. The court then froze the suspension until a final decision could be made.
“We have reached an agreement to end the current dispute with Serey Die after he agreed to pay LE300,000 as compensation to the club,” Zamalek attorney Nasr Azam told the club’s official website on Monday.
“The player will be also obliged to pay the whole costs of the appeal against the court,” he added.
