FIFA has ordered Egyptian club to pay former Ghana internation Junior Agogo a sum of $450,000 In the next three months.

Agogo was forced to resign from the club just nine months after signing for them from English side Nottingham Forest due to unpaid bonuses.

Agogo joined them in 2008 and featured 11 times for the club scoring 3 goals.

Agogo filed a writ against Zamalek but the Egyptian side refused to heed to the calls by FIFA to pay the remaining wages resulting in the latest warning. 

Though reports in Cairo have indicated that the club has invited Junior Agogo or his agent to have his issues rectified,  the board has pointed out that the three month period order will start after the club officially receives FIFA's decison.

The Ghanaian is currently in London recovering from a stroke he suffered last year.
