Al Ahly legal consultant Helmy Abdel-Razek has stated that Dispute Settlement Court in FIFA have ruled in the favour of the Red Devils in their case against runaway striker .

Coulibaly had suddenly fled Egypt during his spell with Al Ahly in May 2017 following one of Al Ahly games in the CAF Champions League.

Al Ahly board declared later on they are filing a lawsuit against the 23-year-old striker in order to preserve their rights.

Abdel-Razek confirmed that the Dispute Settlement Court’s ruling is the fining of Coulibaly 1.4M USD to be paid to Al Ahly. He added that the club managed to present documents that proves the rightness of their stance in the case and that the player fled the country without permission and without being subject to anything that leads him to escape like that, leaving the team halfway through the season.

Al Ahly’s legal consultant explained that the former Kilmarnock striker is prohibited from joining or signing for any other club unless he pays the fine to the Red Devils.
