The FIFA Disciplinary Committee issued a warning to Egypt’s giant club Zamalek for failing to cover the overdue payments of former player Alexis Enam Mondomo, reported Egypt Today.

“The club Zamalek Sporting Club, Egypt, was sanctioned with a fine of CHF 25,000 and given a final deadline of 60 days to pay the outstanding amounts,” stated the FIFA.

Zamalek  is one among six other clubs around the world that have been sent warnings and are at risk of receiving a transfer ban.

“The club will face an automatic deduction of six points and the automatic imposition of a transfer ban for two entire and consecutive registration periods if it fails to meet the final deadline,” it added.

Last year, the club was also fined by football’s governing body as they surpassed the deadline to complete Agogo and Ricardo’s overdue payments.

Similarly, the Egyptian Football Federation was fined on Thursday CHF 50,000 ($50,000 approximately) for playing a World Cup warm up game during a prohibited period. The game had been between  Egypt and Kuwait, ending in a 1-1 draw in Kuwait City, on May 25.

No matches were allowed from May 21-27, as it was known to be a rest period to protect the World Cup players.
