Zamalek are threatened by six points deduction if they fail to pay monies owed Junior Manuel Agogo by the end of next week.

The 36-year-old former Ghana international joined Zamalek from English side, Nottingham Forest in 2008, but terminated his contract nine months later over unpaid salaries and reported the club to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

CAS ruled that Zamalek should pay Agogo 807‚000 Euros, but Zamalek as of now have paid 250‚000 Euros.

“Before every important Zamalek game‚ previous players' requests for late dues pile on us‚” Mansour told El-Asema TV.

“Zamalek is being threatened with a six-point deduction in the coming period if the situation is not resolved.”

Zamalek have had their assets frozen over a dispute with their former chairman Mamdouh Abbas and they say they have been unable to pay Agogo because of the dispute.

“Agogo’s money is still with Mamdouh Abbas‚ the government has frozen the assets," Mansour claims.

"I was supposed to pay the seventh installment of Agogo’s dues‚ but Mamdouh Abbas froze Zamalek’s assets so now we were unable to pay him.”
