Nasr Azzam, Zamalek’s lawyer in international cases, announced the support of the International Court of Sports for the ruling of the FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber regarding the payment of one million euros by Zamalek to the Portuguese Maritimo.
Azzam told FilGoal.com: “The International Sports Court upheld the ruling of the FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber regarding the Maritimo Club’s dues to Zamalek, which amount to one million euros, especially the percentage of Mohamed Ibrahim’s transfer from Zamalek to Egypt for clearing, according to the contract concluded by Zamalek with Maritimo in January 2015.”

And he added, “We are the ones who turned to the International Court of Sports to get additional time to schedule the amount with Maritimo, and this is what happened.”
“This is not a fine, but dues for the player’s transfer,” he added.
He revealed, “Currently we are working on 3 basic issues, the first is for Maritimo, for which Zamalek is owed one million euros.”
He stressed, “The second case is Sporting Lisbon’s dues in the Shikabala case, which amount to 500,000 euros, and the benefits amounted to 800,000 euros.”
He added, “The third case is the dues of former coach Christian Gross, which amount to 700 thousand euros.”
He continued, “We are working on these three cases to avoid any moral penalty issued against the club, such as extending the restriction ban or deducting points.”
And he concluded, “We are also waiting for the reasons for the ruling to prevent the registration of Hossam Ashraf, and we may go to the Swiss Federal Court to stop the decision, but the crisis is that big clubs such as Chelsea and Barcelona tried this method and it did not work.”
