Al Masry fined by FIFA, risk relegation for Jude Aneke’s case

The Federation Internationale de Football Association () has fined Egyptian Premier League side Al Masry with 20,000 Swiss franc for the case of Nigerian forward , threatening them with heavier sanctions including relegation.

Aneke made the move to Al Masry from Nigerian club Warri Wolves in 2012 and spent two years at the club before making a comeback to the Portsaid-based club in 2015 and finally departing again a year later.

FIFA had communicated to Al Masry that they are fined 400K USD after Aneke won his lawsuit against the club.

The football governing body confirmed in an official statement that Al Masry violated article 64 of FIFA disciplinary code. The Egyptian club have been granted a period of 60 days to settle the debt to the Nigerian forward.

The statement also mentioned the severity of the penalty could reach deduction of points, and if the club still failed to cover the payment FIFA will decide on a possible relegation of the first team to the Egyptian second division.
