Al Ahly legal consultant Helmy Abdel Razek has revealed that Al Ahly have sent a letter to FIFA judge informing him about the ruling in the Red Devils’ favour against former team striker .

Coulibaly joined Al Ahly in January 2017 from Scottish side Kilmarnock where he made 12 appearances and scored six goals before fleeing Egypt in May 2017.

Al Ahly board had filed a lawsuit against the Ivory Coast international and the FIFA Dispute Settlement Court ruled that he has to pay a fine of $1.4 million and if he fails to do so he is not allowed to join or sign for any other club.

However, Coulibaly signed for Scottish side FC on a one-year deal and was only registered by the club at the beginning of October after he obtained FIFA clearance.

“The Scottish club received a temporary clearance from FIFA. We have lettered the FIFA judge to inform him that Al Ahly received a ruling in their favour by the Disciplinary Committee saying that Coulibaly is fined 1 million and 436 thousand USD in April 2017,” Abdel Razek told LTC channel.

“I am 100% sure that the FIFA judge will respect the verdict, and a more severe ruling will be issued against Coulibaly within few days because he hasn’t paid the fine a month after the initial rule was released.”
