Zamalek have initiated moves with the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) to overturn FIFA’s ruling of paying €1.2m in compensation to former Ghana striker Junior Agogo.

The White Knights have succeeded in staying the ruling of FIFA as CAS launches a fresh hearing into the case.

Agogo reported the Egyptian giants to FIFA after terminating his three-year contract with the side over unpaid salaries.

The ex Black Stars striker joined Zamalek in 2008 from Norwich City in a deal reportedly worth £750,000.

Agogo was to net a whopping €1.5m in salaries and bonuses throughout his three-year stay with the Cairo-based club.

The Egyptian club however failed to honour its obligations to the player – leading to the termination of his contract and a subsequent complaint to FIFA.

Zamalek have now lodged an appeal to FIFA’s ruling of paying the due compensation to the ex Black Stars striker at the CAS.

They have also managed to suspend the enforcement of the earlier ruling by the world football governing body pending the hearing from CAS.

“The Court of Arbitration for Sport has decided to suspend FIFA’s decision concerning Agogo’s case after we filed an appeal to them yesterday,” Zamalek’s legal councillor Nasr Eddine Azam revealed.

“We are now preparing a new file and we hired a Spanish attorney to follow the case in front of the CAS.”
