Zamalek among six clubs in danger of receiving transfer ban – FIFA
Egypt giants Zamalek has been listed along with other six clubs around the globe that have failed to fulfill overdue amounts towards former players, putting themselves at risk of receiving a transfer ban.
FIFA have warned Zamalek on precedent times about their failure to cover the overdue payments towards the likes of Junior Agogo, Ricardo Alves and Alexis Enam Mondomo.
The White Castle was fined by football’s governing body last year after they surpassed a deadline set where they should have completed Agogo and Ricardo’s overdue payments.
“All clubs concerned were found guilty of failing to comply with previous decisions of a FIFA body or a subsequent CAS appeal decision ordering them to pay significant overdue amounts of money to players,” FIFA’s statement on Thursday read.
The clubs threatened by FIFA’s Disciplinary Committee are Egypt’s Zamalek, Qatari clubs Al Arabi and Al Kharaitiyat, UAE’s Al Jazira, Turkey’s Mersin İdman Yurdu and Russia’s FC Kuban.
Zamalek was sanctioned with a fine of CHF 25,000 and given a final deadline of 60 days to pay the outstanding amounts, according to the statement.
“The club will face an automatic deduction of six points and the automatic imposition of a transfer ban for two entire and consecutive registration periods if it fails to meet the final deadline,” they added.
