FIFA has slapped Egyptian giants Zamalek with a $30,000 fine for failing to pay wages of former Ghana striker Junior Agogo.

The Cairo-based side were given the deadline of Thursday to pay the $450,000 owed the striker or face punishment.

Agogo received a letter from FIFA ordering Zamalek to pay him his remaining wages which valued around $450,000 for cancelling his contract without paying him compensation.

However, Zamalek failed to pay the money which has forced FIFA to step in and hand down the punishment of $30,000 to force Zamalek to pay the ailing player.

The Egyptian side now have three months to pay all the monies owed the player or they will suffer a six-points deduction on the league table.

The Ghanaian joined Zamalek from English side Nottingham Forest in the summer of 2008 but terminated his contract with the Whites just nine months after joining them due to unpaid dues.

Agogo only featured on 11 occasions, scoring just three goals for the team.
