According to reports, Egyptian club Zamalek may be facing a transfer ban if they do not pay off the late dues on the Ghanaian player Benjamin Acheampong, who played for the Egyptian side back in 2017.

Acheampong joined Zamalek on a four-year-deal in 2017 before leaving just 11 months later, then hitting out at the club, who he claims owe him dues worth 1.1 million dollars, according to the BBC.

The 30-year old also explained that when he joined Petrojet on loan in 2018, he was duped out of a million euros; the value of his contract variables.

The report suggests that the disciplinary committee received a letter on 1 March implying that the Egyptian club should pay the Ghanaian striker 1.1 million dollars following the ruling issued by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) that favoured the player over the club.

"I feel great. I have been treated fairly for the second time. The truth came out eventually," Acheampong told BBC Africa. "I hope Zamalek comply with the decision and pay the money as soon as possible," he added.

Acheampong revealed earlier that he wants the Egyptian side to be punished for everything they put him through, stating: "they can't treat people like animals," pointing out that the club put him in many frustrating situations to force him to terminate the contract from his side.
