FIFA has isntructed Zamalek to pay Junior Agogo a staggering amount of $450,000 as his outstanding wages for the period he played for the club.

The World football governing body had initially ordered Zamalek to settle the arrears through a payment plan, yet the five times champions of Africa flouted its directives, compelling the mother body of global football to give them three days ultimatum to make the payment or get punished.

“FIFA does not joke around. They will deduct six points from Zamalek if the late dues are not paid in the given period. They did it before with Ismaily and have done it with big clubs like Barcelona,” Member of the the Egyptian Football Association Magdy Abdel-Ghany told  LTC .

Agogo made a shock move to Zamalek from English side Nottingham Forest in 2008 after his impressive showing at the African Cup of Nations on home soil despite strong interest from top clubs in France and Turkey.

But nine months later Agogo terminated his contract over unpaid salaries and reported the club to FIFA, before the Court of Arbitration for Sport ordered Zamalek to pay Agogo 807‚000 Euros.
