Sporting write to UEFA & FIFA regarding Shikabala

Posted on February 12, 2015


Sporting CP have written to UEFA &  to inform them that is not honouring his contract with the club, according to Portuguese newspaper, O Jogo.

It has been five months since Shikabala fled Lisbon and returned to Egypt, and afraid a complaint about unpaid wages, Sporting have written to both FIFA and UEFA to inform them that the Egyptian midfielder is not honouring his contract, therefore any claim of unpaid wages is rendered invalid.

Having signed for the Lisbon outfit 13 months ago, the 28-year-old failed to adapt to life in Portugal, resulting in him absconding from the club, and despite numerous transfer rumours in the last two transfer windows, the two parties remain deadlocked with Sporting reportedly seeking €1 million for the player.

This saga is likely to drag on for quite some time.
