Zamalek to pay Hearts Of Oak for Karim Alhassan transfer
FIFA have instructed Egyptian giants Zamalek SC to pay an amount of $80,000 to Ghanaian giants Accra Hearts of Oak for the transfer on Karim Alhassan in 2011.
Even though the Ghanaian defender saw out his contract with Hearts of Oak before joining Zamalek on a free transfer, the Egyptian side were supposed to pay a fee to the Ghanaian side for the development of the player which is the Training and Development fee.
Zamalek thought otherwise and failed to honour that part of the contract and resulted in the Ghanaian giants taking Zamalek to FIFA for clarification. The first ruling went against Zamalek but went on to make an appeal last year.
FIFA’s Status Committee sat over the case again and came with a verdict on Tuesday, 11th February 2014, indicating Zamalek pay $80,000 to the Ghanaian giants.
Karim Alhassan who is now with Serbian club Radnicki Kragujevac, failed to earn a place in Zamalek and was booted out of the club in 2012 just a year after joining.
