EXCLUSIVE | Moukoro considering departure, agent blasts Al Masry
Ivorian winger Cheick Moukoro is considering leaving Al Masry over unpaid salaries, the player’s agent revealed.
Moukoro joined the Egyptian Premier League side this summer from Sudanese outfits Al-Hilal Obeid at a time when football activities in Sudan were suspended. As the ban was lifted, Al Hilal filed a complaint to FIFA against Moukoro and the Port Said-based side had to wait until a temporary ITC was issued in September.
“It’s been four months since we signed and my player Moukoro has not been paid,” agent Faustino Mukandila told KingFut.
“The agreement was that the player was supposed to take 50 per cent of the value of his contract once the ITC arrived. Until now the club is doing nothing and delaying the payment they owe to Moukoro.”
Mukandila blamed Al Masry’s management over the ongoing problem, saying that the technical staff led by Hossam and Ibrahim Hassan tried to resolve the issue.
“We are now considering quitting the club. I am going to meet captain Ibrahim and Hossam to free the player and get his passport back from the club.
“The management is very bad and they don’t respect any agreement even on agent commission for the deal which we still have not received.
The Ivorian player has featured in four league games so far with Al Masry, who top the league table on 13 points after six games.
“Moukoro likes Al Masry and the technical management but you can’t ask a player to be well on the pitch if his family back in Ivory Coast is not well because the club doesn’t pay his money.”
Meanwhile, Mukandila revealed that even if the 26-year-old player leaves Al Masry, he might still continue playing in Egypt’s top-tier. “Now we have already two clubs asking for Moukoro in the Egyptian Premier League ready to take him and guarantee his financial conditions,” he added.
